You and your family can choose from many different types of financial aid. The Texas Legislature established the TEXAS (Towards EXcellence, Access and Success) Grant to make sure that well-prepared high school graduates with financial need could go to college. To be eligible for a TEXAS Grant award, a student must be classified by the institution as a Texas resident, be registered with Selective Service, or be exempt and be able to demonstrate financial need, as determined by the institution.
Applicants must be enrolled at least 3/4 time, not have earned a baccalaureate degree and not have been convicted of a felony or crime involving a controlled substance. Initial award priority consideration is given to high school graduation pathway and military pathway recipients who meet at least one high school graduation requirement. To continue receiving a TEXAS Grant award, an eligible student must meet all eligibility requirements, and meet yearly academic program requirements.
