Texas Woman’s University Launches “Zero Tuition” Initiative

Texas Woman’s University has launched a new Zero Tuition program. Under the plan, the university will meet any remaining expenses for any Texas student who qualifies for federal financial aid.

On average, tuition and fees at Texas Woman’s University are about $16,100 for those living at home and more than $23,000 for those living on or off-campus. In order to qualify for the “Zero Tuition Guarantee,” students must be Texas residents, apply for federal or state financial aid, demonstrate financial need, be eligible for federal Pell Grants, enroll full-time, and maintain a grade point average of 2.0 or higher.

More than half of Texas Woman’s University’s undergraduate population is eligible for Pell Grants, which the federal government provides for students to pay for college. The program is meant to offset the remaining costs not covered by financial aid grants. It’s available for up to four years for first-time, incoming freshmen as well as for up to three years for transfer students.

The university aims to “remove economic barriers and provide a pathway” to help more students from low-income families complete degrees. “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,” said Javier Flores, associate vice president for enrollment management at Texas Woman’s University.

Texas Woman’s University is a coeducational institution. However, women make up 87 percent of the 10,000-member undergraduate student body.
