Student Financial Aid
The University provides an extensive and individually designed financial aid program. Ranch Management students may qualify for financial aid from funds available from the Ranch Management Program and through financial aid programs administered through the Office of Scholarship and Student Financial Aid. Certain principles guide the various programs administered by the Office of Scholarship and Student Financial Aid. First, financing a university education is a joint venture between the student and the University. Second, eligibility for Title IV federal financial assistance will be based upon information on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as provided by the family.
Applicants for assistance must be admitted to the University before aid is committed. Applicants for financial assistance programs must submit the FAFSA as soon as they receive notification of acceptance. The FAFSA can be obtained from TCU, high school guidance offices, or in the case of transfer students, other university, college or community college financial aid offices. In addition to the FAFSA, any student requesting aid other than academic scholarships must submit a copy of the parent's and student's IRS Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ to substantiate the application. In individual cases, additional documentation may be required.
Students are advised not to seek part-time employment while attending the Ranch Management Program because of the intense academic workload and the frequent field trips.
