If now submitting documents to our office - While we will do everything possible to process your submitted documents as quickly as possible, there may be insufficient time for you, our office, and the federal processor to complete your file for awarding prior to the fall registration-payment deadline of August 21. If you need any temporary assistance paying for your registration bill or books, you may want to consider the emergency tuition loan and short term loan options available through Student Business Services at www.sbs.txstate.edu.
Aid Disbursement - On August 15, your fall 2014 financial aid that is ready for disbursement will be moved to your student account with Student Business Services. For information about refunds, visit Student Business Services. For general information about the disbursement process, visit Receive My Aid.
Document Processing - 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.
Helping guarantee all Texas children have access to a higher education, regardless of their family's financial resources.
In an initiative to increase access to higher education, Texas State University has developed the Bobcat Promise. This program guarantees free tuition and mandatory fees for 15 credit hours per semester (not to exceed your demonstrated need) to new entering freshmen with a family adjusted gross income that does not exceed a specified level.
