Federal Pell Grants, Federal Direct Loans and Federal Direct PLUS Loans are available to students who have been determined eligible for these programs through the federal application process. Southwestern receives limited allocations for the following programs:

  • Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG)
  • Texas College Work Study
  • Texas B-On Time Loan Program
  • Texas College Access Loan (CAL)
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  • Federal Work Study

Some students who qualify for these programs may not receive the award or may receive a minimal award because they have not completed the FAFSA by the priority date. Students are encouraged to submit all required forms early to receive the maximum in available grant money.

An estimated financial aid award is sent to new students upon receipt of the FAFSA. Official financial aid commitments are made only after the student is accepted for admission to the University and the financial aid file is complete.
