Fee Waivers

Texas State is committed to providing fee waivers to students with demonstrated need. Approximately 30% of applicants receive a fee waiver. In 2018, Texas State granted over $600,000 in freshman fee waivers.The fee waiver program is designed to cover the cost of applying for admission to Texas State’s undergraduate programs. International applicants and applicants seeking a second bachelor's degree cannot qualify for the fee waiver option and are required to pay the application fee.

Application fee waivers are subject to the approval of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and are granted based on evidence of financial need. To qualify for an application fee waiver, you must be a United States citizen, permanent resident or a student identified under Senate Bill 1528, and demonstrate that paying the application fee causes a serious financial hardship.
