What is Texas Residency?

Texas law classifies each person who applies for admission to a Texas public college or university as: a resident of Texas; a non-resident; or a foreign (international) student. Students classified as Texas residents pay lower tuition rates and qualify to apply for financial aid awarded by the state. For detailed information about establishing Texas residency for tuition purposes, please visit the residency website.

Fund Your Way with Financial Aid

We understand that graduate school is an investment. All students admitted to MS programs have access to a financial aid team to help secure funding. Reach out to your McCombs Financial Aid Team with questions.

Federal Loans

If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you'll likely be eligible for federal student loans. To determine your eligibility, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA is available October 1 of each year for the next school year and it is recommended that you have both the current year and next year’s FAFSAs completed no later than June 1st prior to when your program begins. The UT Austin School Code is 003658.

Once your FAFSAs have been successfully processed, you will be offered federal loans to cover your full estimated cost of attendance for the summer, fall, and spring semesters.

You can check the status of your FAFSA after it has been submitted by visiting the “Status/Requirements” page in your Check Aid Status Here (CASH) portal. We will begin packaging McCombs students’ financial aid in June for the upcoming aid year. If you do not receive a Financial Aid Notification (FAN) by the end of June, please feel free to contact us at FinancialAid@mccombs.utexas.edu.

Private Loans

If you choose to pursue a private loan, we recommend applying no sooner than a few months before the start of your program. Most private loans are credit-based and the approval decision may expire. Check with your lender about the length of time your application will remain valid before you apply. As a reminder, summer loans require a separate approved application with your preferred lender and we cannot certify a summer disbursement with a fall/spring loan.

Once you have been approved for loan funding through an outside lender, please be sure to notify the McCombs Financial Aid Team that your loan is ready for certification by filling out this online form. Please be advised that since UT is such a large institution, we do not receive notifications directly from lenders when a student has been approved for funding.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at FinancialAid@mccombs.utexas.edu.

Scholarships

There are a limited number of scholarships available to Texas McCombs MS Program students. All Texas McCombs MS Program applicants are automatically considered for these opportunities; no separate application is necessary. Scholarships are considered separately within each degree program.

Please note that the McCombs Financial Aid Team does not oversee any other scholarship programs and does not take part in the selection process of Admissions Recruiting Awards. You of course can apply for scholarships from outside organizations. Please refer to scholarship search engines similar to Fastweb or Sallie Mae’s Scholarship Search.

For students interested in Real Estate, please visit Flash Realty Solution to learn more about their scholarship opportunity.
