The college experience wouldn't be complete without UHD's state-of-the-art recreation center, club teams and intramural sports. All of which allow students to stay in shape, show off their UHD Gator spirit, bond through teamwork and just plain have some fun.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program
To receive most types of financial aid—including federal, state, and institutional grants, loans, and work-study eligibility—you must complete the online
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you are not sure if you are eligible to submit the FAFSA, visit
College for all Texans website for more information.
The FAFSA is available beginning October 1 for the following school year and must be submitted to the University each year. The priority deadline that UHD would like for students to meet is April 1. Meeting the priority deadline gives you the best chance at being eligible for grant funding that is available on a first come, first served basis. If you do not meet the April 1 deadline, you can still submit the application.
UHD’s Federal School Code is 003612.
The FAFSA is an electronic application that is submitted online through
fafsa.gov. To file the FAFSA you will need your and your parent(s) (if dependent) names, social security numbers, dates of birth, and income information. If possible, use completed tax return information on your FAFSA; otherwise, provide your best estimates.
Some students are considered independent from their parents and do not have to supply parental information on the FAFSA. For financial aid purposes, there are very specific things that make a student independent from their parents. Press play on the video below to learn more about the differences between a dependent and independent student.
For more information on submitting the FAFSA, please see the Federal Student Aid website:
Financial aid is generally awarded for the fall and spring semesters. If you would like to be awarded for the summer semester, you must have a completed FAFSA on file for the applicable year and be enrolled in summer courses. Most summer financial aid will require at least halftime enrollment.
