Question pertaining to financial aid

<p>My tuition and room are being covered by my financial aid, and recently I discovered that the $7,881+ for the room are for the entire year (correct me if I am wrong), but that would mean I would get ~$2,000 back or so. Is that possible? What else do they factor into COA besides book and transportation (I plan on riding the bus, which is free)? Sorry if I come off as ignorant with financial aid, lol.</p>

<p>Yes it is true that the 7881 are for the whole year. If you have additional financial aid funds after all costs have been covered, they will be deposited into the bank account you have on file with UT.</p>

<p>Well they include parking cost also in the COA. That can easily be $500 or more.</p>
