Types of Aid

UNT offers a variety of options to help you pay for your college education. The types of aid listed below require the following: be a U.S citizen or eligible non-citizen; completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid each year by the established priority dates; maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements; and at least half-time enrollment in an eligible program at the university. 

  • Scholarships

    A scholarship is a financial award given to a student on the basis of academic achievement and promise and does not need to be repaid. Many scholarships are awarded based on merit.

  • Grants

    Grants can come from the federal government, your state government, your college or career school, or a private or nonprofit organization and typically don't have to be repaid.

  • Work-Study

    The College Work-Study program allows students to work part-time in specified positions to earn up to $2500 per semester to help pay for educational expenses.

  • Loans

    If you apply for financial aid, you may be offered loans as part of your school’s financial aid offer. A loan is money you borrow and must pay back with interest.

  • Programs & Partnerships

    UNT Promise Programs and Partnerships ensure eligible students will receive a combination of federal, state, and/or institutional funding to cover the full cost of tuition and mandatory fees in fall and spring semesters.
