On-Campus Resources for Students

Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is responsible for the processing of FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and TASFA (Texas Application for State Financial Aid), as well as awarding and disbursing grants, loans and scholarships. If you are a current aid recipient who is experiencing financial hardship, connect with a Financial Aid Advisor to discuss options that may be available to you.

Student Business Services

Student Business Services, which coordinates billing and payment of all university tuition and fees, is located in the Welcome Center and accessible via the Enrollment Services Call Center. You can learn about the various university installment and deferment plans for the payment of tuition and fees through Student Business Services. If you are eligible, payment plans allow you to delay tuition payments without risking course cancellation for non-payment, subject to the terms and conditions of the payment plan agreement.

Financial Literacy Education

Integrated Enrollment Services is home to our on-campus financial literacy counselor and education program. From learning budgeting basics to calculating your costs to attend school, this program can help students understand their finances.


iGrad financial literacy platform is free for students. It provides budgeting tools, a scholarship search, resume help and information on topics such as investing, credit, saving and more.

Emergency Loans

The Dean of Students Office will issue financial emergency loans for up to $500. You apply for the loan in the Dean of Students Office by completing the contact card and going through the preliminary screening interview. An assistant dean will determine your financial eligibility and verify that you are not on the delinquent list. You must complete the loan agreement and the Dean signs off on the loan. Once the paperwork is processed, you’ll be directed to Student Business Services, where they will issue up to $500 in cash.

Payment Plans

Payment Plans including installment pay plan, emergency deferment plan, short-term deferment plan and book loans are options for students to secure enrollment subject to terms and conditions and access to classroom materials.
