Nov. 10, 2022 — DENTON — Texas Woman’s has unveiled a new program that guarantees covering 100% of tuition and fees for incoming Texas students who qualify for federal financial aid.

The Zero Tuition Guarantee will be offered to qualifying new first-time or transfer students who enroll full time at Texas Woman’s and are eligible for federal Pell Grants.

“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, Texas Woman’s associate vice president for enrollment management.

Effectively, the program is designed to cover remaining tuition and mandatory fees not covered by Pell Grants. The Zero Tuition Guarantee is available for up to four years for first-time, incoming freshman and three years for transfer students.

Students may be eligible to receive additional scholarships and financial aid that can cover costs for books and room and board, further reducing potential debt load, Flores said.

The guarantee does not require prospective students to prepare a separate application, but those individuals must submit all TWU required admissions materials and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TAFSA) by March 1, 2023 to be considered.
