Spring 2023 Financial Aid Fair

ÔÇïÔÇï Students are invited to join the UHD Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at the annual Financial Aid Fair and FAFSA Workshop on Wednesday, FebruaryÔÇï 15 in Academic Building - Room A300 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

During the event, UHD Financial Aid counselors will assist students with filing the 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and/or the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA). Students will also have the opportunity to meet representatives from various UHD departments to learn of the services offered to students. There will be food, music, games, prizes, and giveaways to enjoy.

Students should complete their FAFSA by the April 1 priority deadline for the best chance of receiving institutional and state grants before these funds run out. To complete a FAFSA during the fair, students will need to bring their 2021 Income Tax documents, 2021 W2's, and FSA ID. Students can also begin their financial aid application at home and receive assistance during the fair without these documents.
