The purpose of the Texas B-On-Time Loan program is to provide eligible Texas students zero percent interest loans to attend colleges and universities in Texas. If the student meets specified goals, the entire loan amount can be forgiven upon graduation.
The Texas B-On-Time Loan is a great program, and students are encouraged to participate. For more information, visit the TWU Financial Aid Student Loans guide or visit the official Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board website at HH Loans.com.
