Financial Aid

At least two-thirds of all Texas MSTC students receive some form of financial aid:

Federal Aid

Domestic and permanent U.S. residents may apply for federal loans by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available January 1 of each year.

Private Loans

There are a number of private loans available for both international and domestic students that are not regulated by the federal government. The terms of these loans vary from lender to lender.

Military Benefits

Nearly 30% of MSTC students are veterans or current service members, and many of our military students receive full or partial tuition assistance. Learn more about veterans benefits.
