Assured Scholarships

These Assured Scholarships are awarded on the basis of a student’s academic credentials (i.e., test scores and high school rank, IB diploma or AP Capstone Diploma). To be eligible for these awards, you must submit an admission application, official high school transcript and official SAT or ACT scores. These scholarships are guaranteed to all qualified residents and nonresidents (including international students) provided you are admitted to Texas State as a first-time incoming freshman and meet the minimum scholarship qualifications prior to your first semester (fall or spring). If you are a nonresident receiving an Assured Scholarship, you also qualify to pay the in-state tuition rate.

*The administration of the redesigned College Board SAT began March 5, 2016. An incoming fall 2016 student may take the old format SAT exam in fall 2015 and retake the redesigned exam in spring 2016, but because the the two tests are different with two different scoring structures, their scores are not equivalent in comparison. Therefore, tables provided by the College Board will be used to compare and interpret scores. To learn more about the re-designed SAT and the SAT Score Converter, please visit the CollegeBoard

  •  For Texas State scholarship purposes, SAT score is defined as the best composite score from the Critical Reading (old format) / Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Section (new redesigned March 2016 format) and Math Section from a single testing. ACT score is defined as the best composite score from a single testing.
  •  These scholarships are renewable for up to four years based upon required academic performance.
  •  Any combination of financial aid and scholarships cannot exceed the cost of attendance.
