Requirements for Receiving Aid

Any student applying for financial assistance at any TSTC West Texas location must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This includes students and parents who are only applying for the Parent (PLUS) Loan.

Award Letters are usually mailed to applicants within 4-6 weeks of submitting all requested documentation for their financial aid file to the financial aid office. Required documentation may include, but is not limited to, applicant (student) and spouse or parents’ tax transcript for the year requested on the FAFSA, W-2's, verification of dependency status, verification of citizenship, documentation of all income not included on the tax return and proof of marital status.

Applicants are required to submit proof of any information that is requested by the financial aid office. Any applicant, spouse or parent that should have filed a tax return, but failed to do so, will be required to do so before an aid application will be processed. All award letter notifications assume full time regular enrollment unless stated otherwise. Awards are also contingent upon availability of funds.

Financial aid will not be transmitted to student accounts until all official transcripts (sealed, stamped envelope) are submitted to the TSTC West Texas Registrar’s Office.

Students receiving any type of additional assistance (sponsorship, scholarships, VA, etc) must notify the Financial Aid Office immediately. Additional assistance may affect the amounts of Federal or State aid for which a student is eligible. Failing to notify the Financial Aid Office may cause the student to owe money to the Federal or State programs or to TSTC West Texas.

Attendance in Class

Students must attend class to earn the financial aid awarded. Failure to attend class by the census date for each course may result in a reduction or cancellation of financial aid for the term or block. If enrolled in classes that are taught in official block scheduling formats, financial aid for that class will not be earned until attendance is verified by the census date of each class with different and various start dates. Loans and certain grants will not be available until attendance is verified for classes totaling at least 6 credit hours.

Students must attend class beyond the 60% point to avoid owing money back to Federal Financial Aid programs or TSTC West Texas. For additional information on the consequences of withdrawing or not attending class, please see our webpage section under "Withdrawal from the College". Earned financial aid will be calculated on your last documented date of participation in class even if you do not officially withdraw and/or receive a grade of "F" in all classes. Owing money back to federal aid programs, as determined by the Return to Title IV federal refund calculation (R2T4), could stop you from receiving financial aid at this or any other college in the future.
