State Grants

State Grant Programs

State grant programs are available to residents of Texas (as defined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board) who qualify on a need basis as demonstrated by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Currently, the only state grant program Baylor offers is the Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG). Students must complete the FAFSA each academic year to be considered for this grant. Baylor awards TEG on a first-come, first-served basis. State residents who are noncitizens can complete the TASFA to be considered for TEG on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG)

    Eligibility: Awarded to undergraduate students who are Texas residents and demonstrate financial need by completing the FAFSA.

    Amount: Varies, depending on the state allocation

    Renewal Requirements:

    • Maintain full-time enrollment as defined below
      • Undergraduate: 12 hours or more
    • Maintain a minimum 2.5 cumulative Baylor GPA
    • Complete at least 75% of hours attempted in previous academic year
    • Complete at least the following number of hours the previous academic year:
      • Undergraduate: 24 semester credit hours
    • Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

    Limitations: Students receiving athletic or ministerial scholarships as well as those enrolled in ministry degree programs are not eligible to receive TEG. Undergraduates awarded an initial TEG on or after September 1, 2005 are not eligible for a TEG on the fifth anniversary of their initial TEG award.

    TEG hardship policy: Baylor may award TEG to a student who did not meet the academic renewal requirements if we approve their hardship appeal.
