In order to receive the TEXAS Grant after the second year, you must:

Students entering the program from high school who continue in college and who meet program academic standards can receive awards for up to 150 semester credit hours, until they receive a bachelor’s degree, or for five years if enrolled in a four-year degree plan, whichever comes first.

Students entering the program with an associate’s degree who continue in college and who meet program academic standards can receive awards for up to 90 semester credit hours, until they receive a bachelor’s degree, or for three years if enrolled in a four-year degree plan, whichever comes first. 

Tuition Promise

To be eligible for the Tuition Promise in subsequent years after being awarded an initial award, you must:

The Promise is effective for up to four years or until you graduate, whichever comes first. The Promise will only pay for classes taken in the fall and spring semesters. The program covers all of your tuition and mandatory fees using your Pell Grant, any state grant you may receive and any other UT Dallas grants or scholarships you have been awarded.

If you are eligible for the TEXAS Grant program, you will be offered that program instead of the Tuition Promise.

Texas B-On-Time Loan Program

The Texas B-On-Time Loan program is a zero-interest loan. Beginning with the 2015-2016 academic year, only renewal awards will be available. The UT Dallas Office of Financial Aid will determine your renewal eligibility. If this loan is offered to you, the financial aid office will instruct you to complete an application and promissory note online.

To maintain eligibility for future disbursements, the student must:

The maximum award amount for 2017-2018 at The University of Texas at Dallas is $4,361 per semester.

A 3% origination fee will be deducted from the loan proceeds.

A student may not receive B-On-Time loans for more than 150 hours.

Top 10% Scholarship Program

2017-2018 was the final year of the program

The Top 10% Scholarship program is no longer being funded for new participants. Students who have previously been awarded these funds and continue to meet the program’s eligibility requirements are still being funded.  The annual award is $2,000, all disbursed in the fall semester. Because funding is limited, it is important that you apply by the deadline published by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
