office of Student Financial Assistance
Financial aid consists of institutional, state and federal funds intended to help students pay educational-related expenses including tuition and fees, room and board, supplies, etc. Each year when you submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you are applying for federal, state and university aid. There are two types of financial aid offered at Texas A&M University—Central Texas—grants and student loans. If you need additional funding to supplement your financial aid package, alternative student loans are an option. The types of awards offered to you are based on your and your family's financial resources, as well as the availability of funds.
