Can I receive Financial Aid at UTSA if enrolled in courses through the UT Online Consortium?
Yes, students who are enrolled in courses through the UT Online Consortium may receive financial aid at UTSA as long as UTSA is their home school.
Note: Students can only receive financial aid at one school.
How do I receive Financial Aid when enrolled in a UT Online Consortium?
The financial aid process for UT Online Consortium students does not differ from that of the process for students enrolled for on campus courses. You will still need to submit your FAFSA and have it sent to UTSA. Typically, the UT Online Consortium will notify us of hours taken at other schools.
Will UTSA use my Financial Aid to pay for my UT Online Consortium courses at the other institutions?
No, students are responsible for paying the tuition and fees at the other institutions. Each campus on the UT System will directly bill the students for the courses in which they are enrolled.
After the Financial Aid pays the tuition and fees for the on campus courses, UTSA will disburse the remaining Financial Aid directly to the student. Students should use their refunds to pay for their other courses. Specific information about costs for academic courses can be found on the campus’s web site.
Note: UTSA DOES NOT pay the other schools for the students.
