Assured Scholarships

These Assured Scholarships are awarded on the basis of a student’s academic credentials (i.e., test scores and high school rank or IB 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.
