1 TEXAS SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY Paying for your TSU Education

2 Is a TSU Education a GOOD INVESTMENT? WE THINK SO! 1 TSU s need-blind admissions policy helps to create a diverse student body. Our students hail from all 50 states and over 90 other countries and represent a variety of religious, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Although most financial aid is awarded on the basis of need, need is not considered when determining a student s eligibility for admission to TSU. If you qualify for financial aid, the University will meet most of your institutionally-determined financial need TSU has excellent resources. To provide our students with state-of-the-art facilities and programs, we pursue grants to ensure our continued growth. TSU offers a strong financial aid program. In , TSU distributed $26 million in scholarships, grants, and other aid; about $14 million of this amount was gift aid. Since students net tuition and fees cover only 31 percent of actual educational costs, students get much more than they pay for. Our student fee is comprehensive. When you pay your student fee with your tuition, that s it; there are no extra fees. Your investment in a TSU education quickly pays off. The characteristics you develop through your studies and through campus life at TSU sound judgment, flexibility, organization, leadership, speaking and writing skills, and problem-solving and decision- making abilities are qualities that will make you valuable to employers. That s why our graduates have high rates of meaningful employment and acceptance into top graduate schools.
