A college education is an investment for a lifetime, and Austin College seeks to keep quality education affordable for qualified students. Our annual costs are offset by a financial assistance program that includes scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study. While students and their families assume primary responsibility for the educational costs, the Office of Financial Aid will work closely with students and their parents to develop financial aid packages and/or financing plans that work best for the family.
Nearly 95% of Austin College undergraduate students receive some form of financial assistance. Financial assistance comes from a variety of sources, including Austin College’s own merit-based scholarships and need-based grants, as well as federal and state grants, work-study, loan programs and outside scholarship entities.
The Austin College Office of Financial Aid is located in Wortham Center, Room 105. The Financial Aid Staff is available to provide assistance and to answer questions Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call us toll-free at 1.800.KANGAROO (800.526.4276), directly at 903.813.2900, or email your financial aid questions to us.
For current students in particular, if you are experiencing financial pressures stemming from the ongoing economic crisis, the Office of Financial Aid is available to assist you.
