Winter Session and Financial Aid

UNT's spring term/semester begins with a 3 week session which is commonly referred to as wintermester. Since this 3 week session is part of spring, the hours count toward spring aid eligibility and enrollment.

Winter Session (3 Week 1) Dates

Classes begin: December 13, 2021
Final Exams: January 14, 2022

How to Be Considered for Winter Session (3 Week 1) Aid

Note: Winter Session is part of the Spring Term/Semester

A student must:

  • Be admitted to UNT and enrolled in an eligible degree program. Visiting students are not eligible for financial aid.
  • Complete the 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal FAFSA. Or complete the 2021-2022 Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) if eligible.
  • Verify and finalize any pending To Do List items by checking your Tasks on MyUNT.

Disbursement of Financial Aid and Scholarship Funds

Wintermester charges will appear on your spring 2022 bill. Spring 2022 aid will remain at an Anticipated Aid status until 10 days before the start of the term/semester. For more information about financial aid disbursements, see the Disbursement, Payment, and Refund Process site.

Anticipated Aid

  • Anticipated Aid is: (1) Scholarships you have been awarded, and/or (2) financial aid you have accepted on MyUNT.
  • Anticipated Aid does NOT include Work Study or Parent PLUS Loans or Grad PLUS Loans that have been denied due to adverse credit history by the borrower’s lender.
  • The Parent (PLUS) Loan and the Grad PLUS Loan will count toward Anticipated Aid if the Parent PLUS Loan borrower or Grad PLUS Loan borrower does not have an adverse credit history and Student Financial Aid and Scholarships (SFAS) has received a credit approval through the Federal Direct Loan Program.
  • If the total amount of your Anticipated Aid does not cover your full tuition and fee balance, you must make arrangements for the difference by contacting Student Financial Services in order to prevent your classes from being dropped.
