Texas Tuition Equalization Grant

The TEG program is provided by the State Legislature, through the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, to help eligible students defray the cost of attending a private, accredited college or university in Texas. To be eligible, the student must be a resident of Texas and meet the Coordinating Board's criteria for need-based financial aid. In addition, students may not also receive an athletic scholarship or be enrolled in a theological or religious degree program. All Texas residents will automatically be considered for this grant based on the results of an application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a Texas Residency Affirmation. Amounts awarded vary depending upon available eligibility funds and annual limits as set by the Coordinating Board.
