Tuition Set-Aside Information

Senate Bill 1304, passed by the 81st Texas Legislature, directs institutions of higher education to provide notices to students (Texas Education Code, Section 56.014) who pay designated tuition of the amount of the tuition that is set aside for financial assistance.  Therefore, Texas State University is required by law (Texas Education Code, Sections 56.011, 56.012, and 56.465) to set aside a percentage of designated tuition for financial assistance programs.

  • Notifications are sent to students each semester they are enrolled via e-mail after the 20th class day for Fall and Spring terms and after the 15th class day of the final summer term.
  • The set aside does not affect financial aid awards nor does it guarantee that you will personally receive financial assistance.  Financial assistance eligibility is determined by the information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.

Examples of the Financial Assistance Programs funded from tuition set asides are:

  1. Grants
  2. Scholarships
  3. Work-Study Programs
  4. Student Loans
  5. Student Loan Repayment Assistance
