Applying for Financial Aid - Step 5

Do you have special circumstances that might affect your ability to pay for college?

If so, please call the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships office at 940-565-2302. There is not an area on the FAFSA where you can describe your special circumstances. Learn more about how UNT can work with you in certain situations.

You'll receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) via e-mail about two to three business days after you complete the FAFSA. The SAR will arrive via e-mail only if you provide a valid e-mail address when you fill out the FAFSA. If you don't provide a valid e-mail, then it'll take up to three weeks before your SAR is delivered to you by mail. The Student Financial Aid and Scholarships office also will receive your FAFSA data electronically, which they use to determine your eligibility for financial aid.

When you receive the SAR, please do the following:

  • Check the comments section. This is where you'll view your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). This section also will tell you if you've been selected for verification.
  • Review it for accuracy. If corrections are needed, call the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships office at 940-565-2302. If your SAR is accurate, keep it for your records.

When the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships office receives your FAFSA, they will do the following:

  • Verify you have been admitted into UNT.
  • Verify you are admitted into an eligible program.
  • Verify you are meeting satisfactory academic progress.
  • Determine if your FAFSA application is complete.


This process may take several months depending on the time of year you are applying for financial aid. You should continue to access and monitor your financial aid information at myUNT.
