UT for Me students receive personalized support throughout their college journey. UT for Me staff are in regular contact with students to ensure they have what they need to be successful at The University of Texas at Austin. Students complete a yearly check-in with a Student Program Coordinator, and staff are available year-round to answer questions and offer help navigating the Longhorn experience.
UT for Me students have access to financial aid coaching to help them better understand the direct versus indirect cost of attending UT Austin and how to maximize their funds to graduate with the least amount of debt. Students receive assistance with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process and in navigating the verification and Financial Aid Notification (FAN) acceptance process.
Should students need financial support to help handle life’s most unexpected challenges, they will have the opportunity to apply for the UT for Me Emergency Fund.
