How much will I pay at Texas State University?
Texas State University provides need-based aid to its students in a variety of forms to help them pay for their educational expenses at TSU. Once students submit their applications and FAFSA form, the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office puts together award packages for its students. TSU provides financial aid for students studying abroad as well.
Financial aid packages include need-based university, state and federal grants including Texas State Grants and the Texas Public Educational Grant along with a variety of federal grants including the Pell Grant, the Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), and the Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant (IASG). Students are also considered for the federal work-study opportunity and federal student loans, along with a variety of need-based scholarships. While many scholarships may be awarded based on FAFSA submission, students are also encouraged to fill out the TSU Scholarship application using the Bobcat Online Scholarship System (BOSS). Students and parents can also explore private and alternative student loans to subsidize a student's financial aid award package even further.
Additionally, TSU prides itself on its Bobcat Promise, in an effort to make higher education affordable and accessible, promises that when students meet certain eligibility requirements, if they have a family gross income of $35,000 or under, they will receive free tuition and fees toward their education at TSU. The Pathway Partnership Program allows students to apply for "co-enrollment" at Texas State University and Austin Community College. Students can apply for financial aid as a Pathway Partnership participant and be enrolled at both colleges. More information and answers to frequently asked questions about this unique program can be found here. For students experiencing an emergency, TSU has limited emergency funds available that students may be able to use to help them.
A variety of resources and tools are available on TSU's website to help students navigate the financial aid process and help come up with a plan for paying for their TSU education. Some of these include a special Parent Aid with extensive information on the Federal PLUS loan, financial aid videos including an overview of financial aid, FAFSA tutorial videos, and how to pay your tuition bill, a student consumer information page, a helpful area of frequently asked financial aid related questions, a page examining the cost of attendance and a net price calculator.
TSU's CAFE Financial Literacy Program helps students learn about financial topics and build their financial literacy skills. It promotes education and financial wellness, including timely graduation in order to prevent paying extra for higher education. The CAFE program provides events, workshops, student and classroom presentations and meetings with a financial coach. Additionally, on its website, the CAFE program provides helpful financial education resources through links connecting to information on saving and investing, budgeting, student loan education, and overall financial management and wellness. There are a variety of worksheets, templates, and tools on this page as well.
Students can access an online Financial Resource Literacy Center through the Division of Student Affairs that provides links to a variety of financial resources including links to consumer protection, identity theft protection, and federal student aid sites.
