Texas A&M University has provided tuition support since 2008, by pledging tuition coverage to low- and middle-income families through the Aggie Assurance commitment. For students whose family income is $60,000 or less, tuition will be covered by grants and/or scholarships.
Beginning in Fall 2021, we are expanding our Aggie Assurance commitment to provide tuition support grants for first-time freshmen and first-time transfer students whose family income is greater than $60,000 but no more than $130,000. The amount of the tuition support grants will vary based on income and financial need. Tuition grants will not cover all of tuition.
The Aggie Assurance commitment promotes affordability and encourages Texans to pursue higher education at a flagship, research institution.
If enrolling for the Fall semester, you must file a FAFSA or TASFA by April 15th. If you are enrolling for Spring only, you must file a FAFSA or TASFA by October 1st. In addition to these deadlines, you must meet the other eligibility requirements published on our website.
Texas residents (including students who are eligible to pay in-state tuition under SB1528) whose family income is $60,000 or less. Tuition support grants are for first-time freshmen and transfer students enrolling for the first time in Fall 2021 whose family income is greater than $60,000 but no more than $130,000. The amount of the tuition support grants will vary based on income range increments and financial need.
Yes, you must be enrolled in at least 12 semester credit hours at Texas A&M University each Fall/Spring term. If you do not complete 12 hours each Fall/Spring term, you may lose program eligibility for a future term.
You may be covered or supported for up to four consecutive academic years, if you maintain other eligibility requirements. Aggie Assurance and tuition support grants are only awarded in the Fall and Spring terms.
Such awards will be included as part of your financial aid offer and will be counted as scholarships to cover tuition. Aggie Assurance is limited to meeting financial need as demonstrated by the FAFSA or TASFA.
Depending on when your financial aid offer is made, and if you were awarded grants and/or scholarships that cover your tuition, you will not see the words “Aggie Assurance” on your Offer Letter. However, you will have a message on the Status page in your Financial Aid Portal that states your tuition is covered by the Aggie Assurance commitment.
No, only tuition is covered or supported. However, many students could receive additional financial aid, including grants, work study, and loans, that may cover housing and books. Please visit Types of Aid for more information.
No, the Regents' Scholars program will continue to provide up to $5,000 per year for eligible students entering Fall of 2019 or earlier and up to $6,000 annually for students entering Fall 2020 or later.
