What is financial aid?
Federal, state, institutional, and private fund(s) used to assist eligible students in funding their education. Financial aid can be a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, waivers, and student employment. Scholarships and grants are considered “free money” and the student is not required to repay; however, loans and student employment are considered self-help aid and most loans require repayment when a student becomes enrolled less than half time or graduates. Student employment includes both work-study positions and part-time employment positions, either on- or off- campus.
Students at Texas A&M University received approximately $533 million in financial assistance through scholarships, grants, loans, waivers, work-study, and on-campus student employment. Approximately 71% of students received some form of financial assistance. All forms of assistance continue to grow as well as the number of students receiving aid.
