Financial Aid

Financial aid, including student loans, is available to U.S. students. Check out the links below for more information: Many of our graduate programs are self-supporting and therefore ineligible for state of Texas tuition exemptions. If you are planning to use a state of Texas tuition exemption, please contact Financial Aid (financialaid@tamu.edu) to verify whether the specific program you are joining is eligible for the exemption you plan to use.

International students must have the financial resources to cover all costs associated with the program through personal resources or private funding.

Students looking for financial support should contact the Texas A&M ​School of Law Financial Aid office. We believe there is a significant advantage of being able to continue to work full time, to live anywhere in the world, and to study at hours convenient to the individual. In the long run, a student should see a savings over the cost of leaving a job, relocating, and organizing personal lifestyles around preset university schedules.

Veterans

Texas A&M University has a distinguished history of providing educational services to individuals preparing to enter our Armed Forces, those currently serving and personnel transitioning to civilian life.

Veterans and their dependents may be eligible for both federal and state tuition benefits.

Many of our graduate programs are self-supporting and therefore ineligible for state of Texas tuition exemptions, like Hazlewood. If you are planning to use a state of Texas tuition exemption, please contact Financial Aid (financialaid@tamu.edu) to verify whether the specific program you are joining is eligible for the Hazlewood or other exemption.

Please visit the Veteran Services website for further information.
