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

Visit UT Austin Admissions or contact the Residency Office at GIAC for more information.

Financial Aid

Texas Master of Science Programs understands that graduate school is an investment in your future. To assist our students, all MS Programs admitted students can pursue the following financial assistance options.

Scholarships, Loans, and Additional Options

Federal Loans

Federal Loans

Watch our video on Federal Loans. Domestic applicants and applicants who are permanent residents can apply for most loans through the university’s Office of Student Financial Services. To apply for federal and state assistance, students will need the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You will need to authorize The University of Texas at Austin to receive your FAFSA information by entering the following Title IV School Code: 003658. We strongly recommend that you begin applying for financial aid as early as possible. You can check the status of your financial aid application at the Office of Student Financial Services webpage or through your status check page. If you need assistance with your financial aid application, please contact our Accounts Manager.

International Students

International Students

Financial aid for international students, including loans and merit-based assistance, is very limited. International students who apply should be prepared to finance the entire period of proposed study from personal funds. Please note that in addition to program tuition and fees, international students are responsible for health insurance fees and the ISSS student support fees.

All international applicants who plan to enroll at The University of Texas at Austin in F-1 or J-1 status must submit the Certification of Financial Responsibility Form even if they are currently living in the United States. Questions regarding the completion of the form should be directed to: hotline@austin.utexas.edu (please note that the Certification of Financial Responsibility form is used for immigration document processing, not for admissions purposes--therefore, the form is not required for the completion of an admissions application).

Private Loans

Private Loans

If you choose to pursue a private loan, we recommend applying no sooner than a few months before you start the 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.

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

Scholarships

Scholarships

There are a limited number of merit-based scholarships available to Texas MS Program students. All Texas MS Program applicants are automatically considered for merit-based financial assistance; no separate application is necessary. Scholarships are considered separately within each degree program.

Teaching & Work Study

Teaching & Work Study

MS Program students are not typically eligible for university employment as teaching or research assistants. Due to the rigorous nature of the coursework, outside employment is not generally recommended.
