Financial Aid

Texas A&M University-Texarkana offers many financial aid options to help pay for your college expenses. We recognize that financial assistance is an important key to your educational goals and success. We are committed to helping you secure your dreams at Texas A&M University-Texarkana by maximizing sources of governmental, state and institutional funding.

To better assist our students, we offer one on one counseling to answer any questions or concerns you might have. We also offer a financial literacy program to better educate our students on making the right financial choices.

In order to receive financial aid, all students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and list Texas A&M University Texarkana (school code 031703) on their FAFSA®.  All students will need a FSA ID to complete a FAFSA®.  For eligibility requirements, please click here.

Eagle Promise Initiative

The Eagle Promise is a Texas A&M University-Texarkana commitment to ensure our students have 15 credit hours of their tuition and mandatory fees covered with gift aid. Students that meet the criteria below will be eligible for this initiative.


  • Must be a Texas resident or resident of Miller County, Arkansas.
  • Must be an undergraduate, full time, degree seeking student in college less than 4 years.
  • Must be admitted to the university and have a complete financial aid file by March 15th.
  • Must be Pell Grant eligible, receive your maximum Pell Grant eligibility, and have a family income of less than $50,000 according to income reported on the FAFSA®.

Important Notes:

January 15th is the priority deadline for the completion of the FAFSA® and submission of all required financial aid documents for the next award year.  This is also the state of Texas deadline to receive state aid for Texas residents.

The Financial Aid Office (FAO) uses Ace Mail for all official university communication.  It is suggested you check your Ace Mail account frequently.

Your aid is awarded based on full time enrollment for undergraduate students and half time for graduates, to be adjusted and disbursed after the census (12th class day) date each semester.  If you are an undergraduate student attending less than half time, you awards will be less than shown on your award letter.  Awards are subject to change due to a variety of factors. Be advised, it is the student's responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office (FAO) of any enrollment changes as well as any outside aid that has not been added to your award package, as these changes may directly affect your Financial Aid package.
