Welcome to the Texas Southern University community. We are excited that you have chosen to become a TSU Tiger. Members of the TSU community are committed to providing you with the support and encouragement that you will need to become a successful graduate of Texas Southern University. We want to help you accomplish everything you possibly can as a TSU student. One of the ways we do this is through a variety of financial aid.

Awards are renewable for up to three additional years of study if you complete 15 credits each semester, maintain the annual grade point average specified in the award notification, and remain in good disciplinary standing at the University.
