At Texas State Technical College we think youíll find our prices very reasonable and cost-effective. Even so, we are proud to offer our students potential financial aid from a variety of resources to help fund their education.
TSTC's philosophy is to provide financial assistance to students who would otherwise be unable to pursue a postsecondary education. Nonetheless, it often takes the help of family, as well, to meet all the needs of the studentís education. Our financial aid staff is happy to assist students and parents with questions and concerns.
