Financial Aid for Graduate Students

Financial Support Acceptance Policy

UTSA Graduate School is in support of the Council of Graduate Schools "April 15 Resolution."  The resolution states that students are under no obligation t respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15.  In those instances in which a student accepts an offer before April 15, and subsequently desires to withdraw that acceptance the student may submit in writing a resignation of the appointment at any time through April 15.  For more information, click HERE

Financial Aid Classifications

Qualified and approved graduate students are awarded financial aid based on the admission classification, the number of hours attempting, and the level of the course. 

Degree-Seeking Graduate Status: Students admitted as degree-seeking graduate students are classified as eligible to receive financial aid.  They are required to take a minimum of 4 graduate level credit hours in the fall or spring semesters to qualify for financial aid (or a minimum of 3 graduate level credit hours in the summer).  Please note that a conditionally admitted degree-seeking graduate student whose conditions require taking undergraduate leveling courses is not eligible to receive financial aid if he or she is not meeting the minimum number of graduate credits required.

Special Graduate Status:  Students admitted as Special Graduates, due to lack of preparation for the program and/or the need for undergraduate leveling courses, must meet the following criteria to receive financial aid. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours to qualify for financial aid in anticipation of being unconditionally admitted as a Degree-Seeking Graduate Student at UTSA. The enrollment can be any combination of graduate or undergraduate credit hours as required preparation by the program, but students can only receive this accommodation for up to one academic year.  Eligible students can complete the Special Graduate Request for Aid Form and attach supporting documentation.  Those admitted into a Certificate Program are not eligible for financial aid. 


For additional questions or concerns, please contact the One Stop Enrollment Center for additional assistance at 210-458-8000 or
