The Office of Student Life cannot control how this money will impact your scholarships/loans. For those not receiving Financial Aid, you will either receive the money through Direct Deposit or a mailed check. This money will not be sent until after every winner has completed the paperwork and has been processed by UT. It will take 1-2 months to get your prize. Should you receive a prize for this case competition, a member of the Office of Student Life will contact you with the steps you must complete in order to receive your cash prize. You will have one week to follow these instructions or you will forfeit your cash prize. [Must agree to an understanding of this in the registration form.]
