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.


Class Attendance May Effect Your Federal Aid

Many federal aid programs, like the Pell Grant, Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant and TEACH Grant awards, require class attendance for the courses you are enrolled and receiving grant funds. If you are marked as “Not Attending” on the official class roster (e.g., 12th day of each fall and spring term), your award amounts may be reduced or cancelled based on the courses you have actually begun attending. If you fail to begin attendance in all of the courses for which you are registered, you will have failed to establish eligibility for financial aid. In this situation, you will be required to repay all of the financial aid that you have received.


Satisfactory Academic Progress Reminders

SAP appeals must be submitted by the midpoint of the semester in order to be reviewed.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is currently monitored at the end of each term. Detailed SAP requirements can be found here.
