Students should apply for financial aid even if they have not yet been admitted. In order to apply for financial aid, a student must first request a PIN on line. Once you have your PIN, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the only application the University of Houston requires for need based financial aid. You will need your tax information available when you complete the FAFSA. The entire application must be complete. As a graduate student, you are automatically considered independent for financial aid purposes. Parental information is not required, but if married, the spouse's information is required. Be sure to indicate the University of Houston's school code 003652. Tips to avoid errors when filing your FAFSA.
The priority deadline for the University of Houston is March 15, 2013. Priority deadline means the university must receive an accepted student's FAFSA and any required documents by Friday, March 15th at 5pm to be considered for priority awarding of need based aid, which includes Perkins loans and law grants, which are given on a first come first serve basis. The university only receives your FAFSA after accepted to the Law Center. The SFA office will continue awarding on a rolling basis as financial aid files are completed and students are accepted.
