Your Award Notification

If TU offers you a scholarship, you will receive a scholarship offer letter from the awarding department that will explain that scholarship's eligibility and renewal requirements.

If you complete the federal aid application process (FAFSA), the TU Financial Aid Office will send you a TU Award Notification that will list all the aid we can offer you for that academic year including any scholarships or need-based grants and the maximum amounts that you can borrow from the federal loan programs.  

Notification Dates

  • New students — the Financial Aid Office starts mailing award notifications to prospective new fall students by early March.
  • Returning students — the Financial Aid Office starts emailing award notifications to returning students' TU email account by May 1.

Viewing and Accepting Aid

Each Award Notification lists your aid offers for one academic year (fall and spring terms). If you apply for summer aid, it will be listed at the end of the academic year (fall, spring, summer). To view and accept your awards, follow the instructions at Accepting Aid.

If you are a new admit, see Evaluating Your Options if you have questions about comparing aid offers and schools, other aid options, how to finance your remaining costs, or other options for reducing your costs.

The College Financing Plan Aid Comparison Tool - Optional

The College Financing Plan is an optional federal tool that you can use to compare your aid offers and net costs from different schools in a standardized format.
