Financial Aid Included in Data
Educational loans are financial aid that must be repaid with interest. The vast majority of loans borrowed at The University of Texas at Austin (Subsidized/Unsubsidized, Parent PLUS, Graduate PLUS) are part of the Federal Direct Loan Program (FDLP). The Perkins loan, a campus-based federal loan program, makes up the next largest group of loans. A small number of loans borrowed at the University are state loans, funded by the State of Texas (B-On-Time Loan, College Access Loan) and solely for Texas residents. Private or alternative loans (MBA, Law) are borrowed when federal and state loan programs are insufficient to meet educational expenses.
Federal Grants
Need-based grants are financial aid awards that do not have to be repaid. Federal grants, funded by the federal government, fall under this category and are generally awarded only to undergraduate students. Traditional federal grants, such as the Pell Grant, are based solely on financial need, while newer grants, such as the ACG or SMART Grant, now also consider academic performance and/or field of study.
State Grants
State grants are financial aid awards funded by the State of Texas and are dependent on state-allocated funds. Funding is limited and is contingent on legislative approval. State grants are solely for Texas residents and are almost always need-based. Newer state grants, such as the TEXAS Grant, also contain academic merit and academic progress requirements.
Institutional Grants
Institutional grants are funded by an allocation from tuition monies. The Office of Student Financial Services, for The University of Texas, awards institutional grants to undergraduate and graduate or professional students. Awards are generally small and need-based.
The Federal and State Work-Study programs offer students a chance to work either on-campus or off-campus. In addition to earning a paycheck, students get the opportunity to build a resume as well as develop references, contacts, and networks. Student wages are generally funded by a 30/70 split between the employer and the government.
Excluded from this data are all merit or need-based scholarships administered by the Office of Student Financial Services and other entities, NCAA athletic scholarships administered by Intercollegiate Athletics, regular part-time employment, and graduate research/teaching assistant employment. Awards received by non-residents of Texas and international students are also excluded.
