Contact KHEAA directly:
Respond to KHEAA's request for information as soon as possible to avoid delays in processing your aid. KHEAA will notify UT's Financial Aid Office once verification is complete (or SAR comments are resolved) and will make any necessary changes to your aid at that time. In most cases, we will notify you of changes to your aid via email to your UT email account. Changes to your aid are visible immediately on SpartanWeb from the "Finances" tab.
Any documents required to process your financial aid will be listed on your award letter. You may also check for missing documents on SpartanWeb and download most forms from there or the Financial Aid Forms page. Please be sure to log into SpartanWeb to accept or decline your Direct Loans (student).
Changes to your FAFSA may trigger changes to your financial aid eligibility. In such cases, a revised award notice will be sent to the student's email address on record.

Disbursement of Aid
Financial aid funds are awarded for the entire academic year; half of the funds are credited to each semester. Loan entrance counseling and a master promissory note are required before federal loan funds can be disbursed. First disbursements for all financial aid (provided all appropriate documentation is completed) are scheduled for the day after the last day to withdraw from classes with 50 percent tuition credit as indicated in the Academic Calendar for each term. In terms where there is no last day to withdraw from classes with 50 percent tuition credit, disbursements are scheduled for the day after the last day to withdraw from classes with 100 percent tuition credit, as marked in the Academic Calendar. Aid awarded by the University may be used only during the fall and spring semesters. Institutional aid is not available during summer terms or special intersessions. Please refer to the Billing and Payment information page for information on the Bursar's Office refund policy.
