Welcome to Financial Aid and Scholarships

Each year, we help over 25,000 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.

Bobcat Promise

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.  For more details, visit Bobcat Promise.
