Financial Aid Award Notification for Undergraduates

The Office of Financial Aid will begin notifying students of their financial aid eligibility for each academic year according to the following schedule:

Incoming Students

For admitted students who have their FAFSA results to us by January 1, an initial award should be available by mid-February. If we receive your FAFSA results after we begin awarding, you can generally expect to receive your financial aid award within 7-10 business days.

Returning Students

Students whose FAFSA results are received by April 1, and who have met the standards for academic progress, should have awards by mid-June. Awards will be viewable on Porches.

If we receive your FAFSA results after April 1, you will be considered a late applicant and will be awarded after the on-time applicants. Being a late applicant can put you in jeopardy of losing need-based funds.

 

Adjustments to Financial Aid

Per federal regulations, financial aid awards may be adjusted throughout the school year as changes occur in your enrollment status, academic standing or in the program eligibility itself. If your aid is adjusted due to one of the reasons listed below you will be notified via email.

Unless enrolled as an ADAP student, undergraduate students are generally awarded financial aid based on being a full-time student (taking at least 12 hours per term). If you anticipate carrying less than 12 credit hours during any semester or need to drop below full-time status during the semester, we encourage you to speak with a financial aid counselor to discuss your eligibility as a part-time student. At that time we will also review with you the potential impact dropping courses may have on your financial aid for the following year.


If you withdraw from all of your courses, either officially or unofficially, we will have to perform a Return to Title IV' aid calculation.

Financial aid for the summer is limited. Returning undergraduate students who enroll at least half-time will automatically be considered for need-based grant funding from UD. In addition to the grant funding from UD, students will be considered for grant eligibility from federal and state sources as well. Eligible students registered by April 24 will receive award notification by May 6th.  Students who register after April 24 will be awarded aid beginning in mid May and continuing on a regular basis.  Aid will be based on a student's enrollment, so if registration changes, the student's aid will be adjusted accordingly.  Students can contact fss@udayton.edu with any questions about financial aid eligibility. 

 


Your financial aid award was calculated based on your response on the FAFSA regarding your housing plans. You were assigned a cost of attendance (COA) based on whether you are living on-campus (UD or landlord) or commuting (living at home with your parents). If your plans have changed, please notify our office.

If you are suspended or dismissed from the University of Dayton, you cannot receive financial aid until you are readmitted as a degree-seeking student. Your financial aid award for the next year will be canceled but you can appeal for reinstatement after being readmitted. The amounts of your financial aid awards will be based upon the available funds at the time of readmission. All regulations for aid renewal will be used.
