Alert:  Federal government suspends IRS Data Retrieval tool use

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool on is currently unavailable. However, this does not stop you from applying for financial aid.  The online FAFSA remains operational. The income information needed to complete the FAFSA can be found on your 2015 tax return.


Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements

All financial aid award offers are contingent upon maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). SAP is monitored at the end of each academic term (fall, spring and summer). Failure to maintain all SAP standards may result in cancellation of all offered federal, state and institutional financial aid awards. Information about the financial aid SAP standards may be found online.


Still owe a balance after getting your refund?

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.
