Criteria for Awarding the Grant:

Eligibility will be based on proximity to campus* and financial need as determined by the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) calculated by the US Dept. of Education as a result of a student completing their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Unless otherwise stated, students attending an eligible campus/program, who enroll more than 30 days prior to their start date, have an EFC of 11,000 or less, and who have a proximity to the campus of at least 50 miles will be initially eligible for the grant. Full eligibility details are listed below.

Initial Eligibility Details:

  • Eligible students will forfeit their grant eligibility and/or award if they cancel or postpone beyond the latest applicable start date.
  • Students receiving the Relocation Grant are not eligible to receive the: Institutional Grant, Technical Education Institutional Grant, Salute to Service Grant, or any other UTI need based grant/scholarship/tuition reduction program. If students are eligible for any of the above-mentioned programs, as well as the Relocation Grant, they will need to choose which program they wish to accept.
  • Initial eligibility will be based on the approved FAFSA results sent to the school, called an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) that is on file for the 2023-2024 financial award year. An approved ISIR meeting the EFC criteria must be received by the school no later than 9 days following the student’s start date to be considered eligible.
  • A student’s proximity to the campus will be based on the address provided at the time the student initially provided their information to the school.

Sustained Eligibility Details:

  • Eligible students are allowed no more than 3 course failures in order to maintain grant eligibility. Upon a third course failure, grant eligibility will be lost for the remainder of the student’s enrollment.
  • Grant eligibility is non-transferable. Students who are grant eligible will lose the Relocation Grant if transferring to another campus.

  • All UTI programs are subject to seat availability, and occasionally, a program start date for which a grant is available, reaches capacity and students may be asked to postpone their start date.

This applies only to students who are asked to postpone due to capacity constraints, and not students who postpone on their own for unrelated reasons. Students who have not completed all necessary steps to begin their program prior to the original start date who are impacted by a capacity postponement will lose their grant eligibility if the grant program is not otherwise available for the new start date.
