DID YOU KNOW?
There are certain STATE Colleges and Universities that offer FREE tuition if a student qualifies financially!
Helping Your Child Complete the Apply Texas Application
It's not too late to help your child apply to college! There are many schools in Texas there are still accepting applications. Texas State has a deadline of March 1st, Texas Southern University isn't due until July, and Tarleton State will accept applications until August! What makes this even easier is that all public universities in Texas use the Apply Texas application.
You may have used or seen the Apply Texas application with your child but it can be confusing. Watch this great video for parents that breaks the applications down into six easy steps. Still, have questions? Reach out to your student advisor or counselor to schedule an appointment.

The Texas Tuition Promise Fund®
If college is part of your child’s future, we’ve got a plan to help save for it. The Texas Tuition Promise Fund® allows you to lock in current undergraduate tuition rates and schoolwide required fees at Texas public colleges and universities, excluding medical and dental institutions. Tuition units purchased in the plan may be used for all or a portion of these costs, and our flexible payment options fit almost any budget.
It’s easy to open a Texas Tuition Promise Fund account. And, the sooner you start, the more affordable a college education could be.
Texans may enroll in the plan at any time between Sept. 1 and Feb. 28 (Feb. 29 in leap years). Enrollment for children younger than 1 year of age extends through July 31.
Here is a list of webinar opportunities.
