Grants are gifts of money and are usually awarded on the basis of financial need. A student's financial aid package may include grant money whenever eligibility and funding levels permit. Graduate students are not eligible to receive the Federal Pell Grant or Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG).


Tuition Equalization Grant

The Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG) is a Texas-sponsored program for residents attending a private university in the state of Texas. The TEG is provided to help offset some of the difference in cost for students attending private universities in Texas. Students must meet the following eligibility requirements to be eligible for TEG:

  • Must meet all requirements to receive federal aid as described previously;
  • Be a legal Texas resident.
  • Be enrolled full-time at the graduate level (nine or more hours) in a semester to receive the grant for that semester;
  • Not be the recipient of an athletic scholarship;
  • Not be a Christian Ministries, Church Music, Christian Studies major, or be a student in the MACE, MAWL, or Doctoral programs. Some exceptions apply for non-ministerial students; Contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
  • Income level of the family may not exceed $95,000 per year.

The Office of Financial Aid completes the application for TEG funds for all eligible students as long as funds are available. Information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine eligibility. TEG funds are limited, so students are encouraged to apply for financial aid before the priority deadlines published in the university calendar.
