Entering Student Financial Aid

Welcome to Toledo Law! Below is an outline of financial aid forms to complete and frequently asked questions. After reviewing this information, contact the Law Financial Aid Office at LawFinAid@utoledo.edu or 419.530.4131 if you have follow-up questions.


Checklist

Complete the following items before Orientation and Registration. Some requests may require 2-3 weeks of processing time, so we encourage you to start early.

  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  • Master Promissory Note
  • Graduate Entrance Counseling
  • Direct Deposit Authorization - Students may authorize direct deposit of their financial aid loan disbursement via the myUT portal by clicking "Direct Deposit Authorization" under "My Accounts."
  • Federal Title IV Authorization/Restriction - The Title IV Consent allows students who receive federal loans to authorize these loans to pay for optional fees, including the legal service fee, the bar prep fee, the green fund, and a parking permit. Without this authorization, students are required to pay these types of optional fees by other means. If these optional fees are not paid in a timely fashion, late fees will be accessed. Students can submit or change their authorization via the myUT portal by clicking "Title IV Consent" under "My Accounts."
  • Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) - A FERPA privacy release is needed in order for UToledo Treasurer and Financial Aid offices to release financial information to anyone other than the student, including parents and spouses. The student must complete the Financial Release Form via the myUT portal by clicking "FERPA Consent" under "My Accounts" and naming the parties to whom they wish information to be made available.

FAQ

When do I register for fall classes?

The Office of Admissions will provide entering first-year law students with a class schedule. Students may register for their courses upon receipt of their course schedule.

When is my bill due?

Bills are due at the time of course registration. Financial aid must be authorized for a sufficient amount to cover semester charges at the time of registration. Any balance remaining after authorized aid is due by the invoice date. Refer to UToledo Treasurer's Important Dates for more information.

How much do I owe?

Students may determine an estimated bill for the semester by viewing the tuition and fee schedule. After course registration, students may view bills on the myUT portal to determine how much, if any, is due after authorized financial aid.

When do I receive my financial aid?

Provided that a FAFSA and all required documentation has been completed, financial aid will disburse on the first day of the semester. If financial aid is less than the billed amount, students will be expected to pay the difference at the time of registration. If financial aid is greater than the billed amount, students can expect to receive a refund of the excess financial aid funds once classes begin.

How will I receive my refund?

In order to ensure a prompt refund, students are encouraged to complete the Direct Deposit Authorization via the myUT portal by clicking "Direct Deposit Authorization" under "My Accounts." If direct deposit is not authorized, a check will be mailed on the first day of the semester.

I have rent due in August, can I use my financial aid?

Excess Financial Aid refunds will not be available until classes begin. Students should make other arrangements to pay rent and living expenses prior to disbursement. The University of Toledo does not provide an “early release” or an "advance" on your loan funds.

How do I activate my UTAD account and University email address?

Review University instructions for how to activate your UTAD account. Students should monitor their Rockets email address as the primary means of communication with the University.

Can I access my student information online?

The myUT portal is a personalized account that allows students to use many of the University's online resources, including course registration, financial aid and billing information, Rockets email account, and much more. Students may view information specific to the College of Law under the "Law" tab.
