Dates and Deadlines in the UT Academic Year

October-December 

If you are a high school senior, you should apply for admission and scholarships. Look into other sources of aid at your high school guidance office, library, employer, union, church, etc.  UT will begin awarding scholarships to accepted freshmen in October 2016.

The 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available as early as October 1, 2016 at: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov  The University of Toledo school code is: 003131.  You will be able to use 2015 tax information to complete the FAFSA for 2017-2018.  The priority deadline for UT to receive your processed FAFSA is February 1.

The verification of FAFSA data is student specific. The Department of Education and UT encourage the use of the IRS data retrieval process within the FAFSA website. You will be notified by the UT financial aid office regarding any additional information or forms that will be required to complete the FAFSA process.

The official means of communication with students that are admitted to the university is through their UT email (firstname.lastname@rockets.utoledo.edu). Important information will be shared through email. Please set-up your UTAD account as soon as you receive your admit letter.
