Texas B-On-Time Loan program discontinued

The Texas Legislature has voted to end the Texas B-On-Time Loan program. No new students will be accepted into the program for the 2015-2016 academic year.

 

Students who were disbursed Texas B-On-Time Loan funds prior to 2015-2016 will be unaffected by this new legislation. If you received the Texas B-On-Time Loan at a previous institution, please submit documentation to our office so that we may review your award eligibility at UNT.

 

Prior Year Balances must be paid before 2015-2016 awards can be disbursed

Federal regulations prohibit the release of funds to your student account when a balance over $200 from the previous academic year is present. 

 

Any financial aid awarded to you for Fall 2015 will not be disbursed to your student account until the outstanding balance is resolved. You may pay the prior year balance by check or credit card online at myUNT. Do not delay in resolving this issue so that we may deliver your Fall 2015 financial aid to you in a timely manner.

 

New FSA ID replaces PIN

The Federal Student Aid PIN was replaced with the FSA ID on May 10, 2015 by the U.S. Department of Education. The new FSA ID consists of a user-created username and password to electronically access personal information on Federal Student Aid Web sites, including FAFSA on the Web. You can use your FSA ID immediately to sign your FAFSA, but must wait for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to verify your information before you can use the FSA ID to create a renewal FAFSA, make corrections to your FAFSA, or view your SAR.

 

Still owe a balance after getting your refund?

Beginning with Fall 2015, federal regulations prohibit Title IV/Federal financial aid from paying the following charges:

 

  • Installment plan charge, Short Term Loan Origination Fee, Memorial Loan fee, Late payment or default fees
  • Excess hours tuition fee
  • Repeat course fee

Once federal financial aid has paid tuition, fees and housing charges (if applicable), some students may receive a refund yet still owe a balance to UNT because of finance and/or overtime charges. Payment arrangements would need to be made for the remaining balance to secure a student’s classes.
