Some students are receiving fraudulent calls from persons claiming to represent the Department of Education. These scam artists are promising grant funds if the student gives them money first. Neither the Department of Education, nor Financial Aid and Scholarships, will ever ask for money in return for financial aid. If you have questions about communications with the Department of Education or Financial Aid and Scholarships, please contact our office.
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.
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.
