Scholarships & Financial Aid offers scholarships for incoming freshman. You may apply for all University level scholarships through the ApplyTexas Application or Common App. Students must also submit a Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) in order to be considered for freshman scholarships. The scholarship deadline for Fall is December 1*.
Your grades are only one of many components considered in the review process. Additional factors for selection include, but are not limited to your leadership, community service, special talents, first generation college status, and academic achievement under difficult circumstances. Some scholarships also have a financial need component.
*If the deadline falls on a weekend, the application will remain open until 11:59 PM (CST) on the following Monday.
As an International student, you may qualify for various programs depending upon your visa status. To determine if you qualify for aid programs, submit the International Student Financial Aid Application (ISFAA) each year. The priority date to submit the ISFAA for financial aid purposes is May 1. Completion of the ISFAA does not guarantee that aid will be awarded. For the purposes of scholarships which require or suggest that an ISFAA be submitted, the ISFAA will need to have been submitted by the time of the application for the applicable scholarship.
