Student Financial Aid
Financial Aid is made available by a process through which the student, the student’s family, and Texas A&M International University work together through federal, state, and local programs to assist in meeting the student’s financial needs to attend college. To qualify for financial assistance, a student must be admitted into a degree-granting course of study, be meeting TAMIU’s Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (SAPP), and must not be in default on any student loan. The student must not owe a balance for Federal Title IV funds returned due to complete withdrawal from TAMIU or any other institution. All students must apply for financial aid on an annual basis and must meet the SAPP at all times whether financial aid was received or not.
SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS POLICY (SAPP)
Before a student receives federal, state and institutional aid, federal regulations require that the student meet and continue to meet some basic academic progress standards. The following represents TAMIU’s satisfactory academic progress policy regarding GPA, PACE towards degree completion, and Maximum Timeframe Credit requirements.

Non Degree/Non Certification or Transient Students
Federal regulations state that individuals enrolled as a regular student in an eligible program can receive federal Title IV aid and/or state aid. A regular student is one who is enrolled for the purpose of obtaining a degree offered by the institution.

Private loans can be obtained for these courses but are based on credit worthiness.

COLLEGE FOR TEXAS
Types of Financial Aid
Students and their family can choose from many different types of financial aid. Some are based on financial need, and some on academic performance. Others are tied to a student’s or family’s ability to borrow. Not all colleges and universities participate in all programs, but the more you know about financial aid, the better prepared you will be. This resource will provide you with information on different types of financial aid available to students attending Texas colleges and universities. These include:
- State and Federal Grants and Scholarships
- Private/Corporate Grants and Scholarships
- Loan Repayment Programs
- Tax Credits and Other Programs
- Waiver Programs
- Work Study Programs
- $1000 Tuition Rebate Program
Gainful Employment Program
At TAMIU, additional certificate programs are offered, however Title IV assistance is currently NOT approved for such programs by the U. S. Department of Education. In accordance with current guidelines, financial aid can be offered to students in a 'certificate program' only if the SCHOOL is awarding the certificate. At TAMIU, the certificate is not awarded by the SCHOOL but rather from the State of Texas; the student completes all required coursework at TAMIU which allows the student to 'sit' for certification at the State level, but students NOT certified by the State of Texas will not be allowed to 'practice/work' in Texas. Therefore, TAMIU's 'certificate programs' do not fall under the purview of a Gainful Employment program and the student is not eligible to receive financial aid. TAMIU's current 'certificate' programs include:
- Civic Engagement
- English-Spanish Translation
- International Leadership
- International Studies
- Language Certificate in Spanish
- Latin American Studies
- Oil and Gas Accounting
- Petroleum Engineering
- Data Analytics
- Master Reading Teacher
- Non-Profit Leadership and Management
- Educational Diagnostician
- Reading Specialist
- School Counselor
- Master Reading
PURCHASING BOOKS USING FINANCIAL AID
Students who are receiving financial aid can purchase their books and supplies at the University Bookstore by charging them to their student account. Students must have a complete financial aid folder, be registered for classes, and their amount of aid must exceed the total tuition and fee charges for the semester. You will need to present your TAMIU ID card to the University Bookstore.
Bookstore purchases begin on:
- Fall semester: July 25th
- Spring semester: December 1st
- Summer terms: one week prior to first class day
By charging your books and supplies you agree to adhere to the policies of TAMIU’s Office of Financial Aid, Bursars Office and Barnes & Noble Bookstore. These policies include, but are not limited to, refunds, returns, and exchanges.
PAYMENT OF TUITION AND FEES
Financial aid funds are credited to a student's account balance after the census date of each semester. A student must have all financial aid requirements complete and be enrolled for the current term.
Students are responsible for making timely payment on their account to avoid late fees if their financial aid requirements are not complete or their aid is not enough to cover the entire balance.¹
The following grants will be automatically credited to the current semester* account when students enroll for the required number of hours for which they were awarded and have met all requirements:
- Federal Pell Grant (FPELL)
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
- Texas Public Educational Grant (TPEG)
- Texas Resident Success Grant (TAMIU Grant)
- DUSTY Texas Resident Grant (TAMIU Grant)
- Texas Resident Scholarship (TAMIU Scholarship)
- Towards Excellence, Access, and Success Grant (Texas Grant)
- All Scholarships awarded by TAMIU
Students are responsible for payment of all past due balances at the University.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since financial aid awards are automatically applied to your account, your classes, or portion thereof, you will NOT be dropped for non-payment. If you change your mind about attending TAMIU, you MUST officially notify the University Registrar’s Office to drop your classes and the Office of Financial Aid to cancel your financial aid awards.
FINANCIAL AID AUTHORIZATIONS, DISBURSEMENT AND REFUNDS
Financial aid will be authorized (credited) into student account after the census date of each semester.
If a student received financial aid in excess of their tuition and fees and other on-campus expenses (such as bookstore purchases, campus housing and meal plan) for a given semester, a disbursement (sometimes referred to as a refund) will be issued by the Bursar’s Office at TAMIU. Disbursements are released on Friday afternoons. Students will receive their disbursement by direct deposit to the account of their choice.
For courses that begin after the regular semester date, disbursements will not be issued until approximately a week after the census date for that course(s).
Pending financial aid will not be disbursed (aid that has not been confirmed). If you have questions regarding pending financial aid please contact the Office of Financial Aid. Under no circumstances will financial aid be released before the designated disbursement date.
Generally a student ceases to be eligible for aid once he/she has finished the term and is no longer enrolled. An otherwise eligible student becomes ineligible to receive FSA funds on the date that the student:
- for a loan made under the Direct Loan program, is no longer enrolled at least half time
- for purposes of the Pell Grant and FSEOG Grant, is no longer enrolled at the school for the award year
However, if certain conditions are met, a student might be considered for a disbursement after the date they became ineligible. These disbursements are called "late disbursements." The student may submit verification documentation and receive a late disbursement after they cease enrollment if the Department of Education processed a FAFSA with an official EFC while he/she was still enrolled and eligible. In addition, for a Direct Loan program student loan, the loan must be originated prior to the date the student became ineligible.
The student must complete verification no later than 120 days after the last date of enrollment. A school may not make a late disbursement later than 180 days after the date the student becomes ineligible.
WITHDRAWAL FROM ALL COURSES & RETURN OF FEDERAL STUDENT AID
Students receiving federal financial aid who withdraw from or stop attending all courses may be required to return a portion of financial aid received.
Federal regulations [HEA Section 484B, 485(a)(1)(F), 34 CFR 668.22], referred to as the Return of Title IV Funds policy, require TAMIU to calculate a refund and repayment of federal aid received by students who withdraw prior to the 60% point of a term for which he/she has received federal aid. The Title IV (federal) programs under this policy are: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Teacher Educational Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant and Federal Direct Loans (Subsidized, Unsubsidized and PLUS). According to the Return of Title IV (R2T4) Funds policy, the student is allowed to retain only the amount of Title IV financial aid that was earned. If a student withdraws or stops participating in classes, a portion of the aid received is considered to be unearned and must be returned to the Title IV programs from which it was received. If the R2T4 calculation results in unearned aid that must be returned, both the school and the student are responsible for returning funds.
Students wishing to completely withdraw from the University must initiate the withdrawal process in the Office of the VP for Student Success (ZSC 224).
A student who fails all of their classes in a term may be subject to the R2T4 calculation. If a student “earned” at least one of their F’s (i.e. they participated in class until the end of the semester and received an F for poor performance), then no calculation is required. However, if the student failed all classes because they stopped attending at some point in the semester, then a R2T4 calculation is required based on the last documented date of attendance. If a last date of attendance cannot be determined, the 50% point of the term will be used as the withdrawal date, and the unearned aid will be 50%. At the end of the term, the Office of Financial Aid will notify students who have received all F's of the requirement to perform the R2T4 calculation.
Additional information concerning financial aid can be found at the Federal Student Aid website, studentaid.ed.gov, or at the College of All Texans website, www.collegeforalltexans.com. Undocumented students can use the college guide for undocumented students to find information on: the DREAM Act and DACA, How to find and apply for colleges, and financial aid for undocumented students.
