Mission Statement

The Office of Financial Aid at Texas State Technical College Harlingen (TSTC Harlingen) provides financial services to assist students who would otherwise be unable to pursue a post-secondary education.  The resources are made available to ensure that finances do not hinder qualified students from earning an Associate Degree; Academic Core Curriculum (transfer credits to a four-year institution in the state of Texas); or a Certificate.  The  Financial Aid Office supports higher education and is committed to the development of staff, policies, and procedures to enhance student success.  The primary purpose of the Financial Aid Office is to provide accurate, responsive and respectful services to all constituents of TSTC Harlingen; to manage the College’s resources in an efficient and equitable manner; and, to adhere to National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) professional practices and ethical standards. 

Code of Conduct

An institutional financial aid professional is expected to always maintain exemplary standards of professional conduct in all aspects of carrying out his or her responsibilities, specifically including all dealings with any entities involved in any manner in student financial aid, regardless of whether such entities are involved in a government sponsored, subsidized, or regulated activity. In doing so, a financial aid professional should:

  • Refrain from taking any action for his or her personal benefit.
  • Refrain from taking any action he or she believes is contrary to law, regulation, or the best interests of the students and parents he or she serves.
  • Ensure that the information he or she provides is accurate, unbiased, and does not reflect any preference arising from actual or potential personal gain.
  • Be objective in making decisions and advising his or her institution regarding relationships with any entity involved in any aspect of student financial aid.
  • Refrain from soliciting or accepting anything of other than nominal value from any entity (other than an institution of higher education or a governmental entity such as the U.S. Department of Education) involved in the making, holding, consolidating or processing of any student loans, including anything of value (including reimbursement of expenses) for serving on an advisory body or as part of a training activity of or sponsored by any such entity.
  • Disclose to his or her institution, in such manner as his or her institution may prescribe, any involvement with or interest in any entity involved in any aspect of student financial aid.
