Types of financial aid
Federal Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students who display exceptional financial need and have not earned a degree.
The Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (SEOG) is meant for undergraduate students with exceptional financial need.
Thanks to The TSTC Foundation and a generous community, we offer dozens of scholarships that do not have to be repaid.
The Work-Study program lets you earn your aid with a part-time job, as long as you remain enrolled in at least six credit hours.
Another option: you can apply for Federal Direct student loans.
Your parents may be able to help you with the Parent Loan Undergraduate Student (PLUS) program.

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 Texas State Technical College 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.
