Shared on behalf of Diane Sprague in Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid
We are writing to share important information about financial aid for students in need of technology resources which may include laptops or other technology such as webcams, mobile hotspots, software, etc. Students who have submitted a financial aid application, either a FAFSA or TASFA, who are in need of additional funding for these resources should submit a cost of attendance appeal form. Students can request via this appeal a reevaluation of their cost of attendance, the estimated cost of all expenses that determines their maximum financial aid eligibility. This appeal may be submitted for the following additional expenses:
- computers and other technology needs (including Wi-Fi, webcams, hotspots)
- additional textbooks and supplies
- unusual medical/dental/optical expenses
- increased rent/mortgage payment, and
- child care expenses.
UT will leverage the established cost of attendance appeal process to award financial aid for additional technology resources.
