If you have accepted the parent loan, you will only be able to complete the parent loan application after July 1, 2014. Also, the three week deadline to respond to any outstanding requirements does not apply to the parent loan application.

Due to the unusually high volume of documents our office is receiving, we are experiencing delays in processing. Please allow 3 - 4 weeks for the processing of any documents that you submit to our office. We very much appreciate your patience.

Welcome to Financial Aid and Scholarships

Each year, we help over 24,000 Bobcats finance their education. We offer a variety of assistance including grants, work-study, student and parent loans, scholarships and nonresident tuition and fee waivers. Regardless of your financial resources, attending Texas State is possible. If you need assistance, Financial Aid and Scholarships is here to help.

Please remember that many financial aid award packages cannot meet all of your costs while you are attending Texas State University. So it is very important for you to manage your financial resources wisely and be prepared to pay for at least some of your costs out-of-pocket.
