Texas Woman’s University (TWU) has announced it will cover full tuition for students enrolling who qualify for financial aid.

Students may be eligible if they qualify for Federal Pell Grants, are first-time or transfer students at TWU, and are enrolling as full-time students. The guarantee also requires that students “maintain a 2.0 GPA and complete 75% of courses attempted for renewal eligibility.”

Javier Flores, Texas Woman’s associate vice president for enrollment management, stated, “This is the university’s commitment: to provide new students with an opportunity to graduate in four years or less with the lowest amount of debt.”

The Zero Tuition Guarantee would cover the remaining tuition and fees that Pell Grants do not cover. It would be available for up to four years. Those who qualify are also welcome to apply for other scholarships to cover boarding, school supplies, and books.

With programs in the liberal arts and sciences, nursing, health sciences, business, and education TWU has campuses in Denton, Dallas, and Houston. The university graduates more healthcare professionals than any other Texas college.

While the school is called Texas Woman’s University, men are welcome to apply; 11% of the student population are men. They have a student population of a little less than 16,500 students.

Those wishing to apply must complete their FASFA or the Texas Application for State Financial Aid by March 1, 2023.

A handful of other Texas universities offer free tuition to qualifying individuals. Texas A&M offers grants and scholarships to fully cover tuition for low-income families and those who qualify for the Pell Grants, but they do not cover room and board.

Other colleges offering similar scholarships include Texas Tech University, the University of Houston, the University of Texas at Dallas, and the University of Texas at Austin.
