Financial Aid

Get help paying for college.

Even if you think you’re not likely to qualify for need-based aid, it’s still a good idea to apply. More than 60 percent of UTEP's students receive some form of financial aid. We are aware how important a grant, loan or workstudy can be in helping you achieve your educational goals and we are here to help you every step of the way.

Free Application for Student Aid

Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid, commonly referred to as the FAFSA, is the key to determining whether you are eligible for federal, state, institutional, and private financial aid such as grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans. In order to be considered for Federal student aid you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For information about filling out the FAFSA visit the Office of Student Financial Aid.

FAFSA Priority Date: March 15

If you miss the deadline, many important aid options will not be available to you.

UTEP School Code: 003661

When you are filling out the FAFSA you will be asked for the school code. The school code is used in the FAFSA to identify the school you are applying to.

If you’ve never applied for financial aid before and would like an idea of what to expect, visit the Federal Student Aid’s FAFSA4caster. The FAFSA4caster will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about the process and the various financial aid programs available to you.
