Financial Aid

Students participating in a semester exchange program must pay all Texas A&M tuition and fees for the duration of the program. For information on how to apply for financial aid and/or scholarships, please visit the financial aid and scholarship page.


Fall and spring semesters: For students to keep their financial aid and/or scholarship package, they must have a full-time status. To maintain full-time status, students must register for:

  • 12 credit hours if they are an undergraduate student.
  • 9 credit hours if they are a graduate student.

Summer semester: Students will need to register for 6 credit hours in order to maintain their full-time enrollment status and to be eligible for their financial aid and/or scholarship package.

Students are able to register for courses at the semester exchange institution they are attending; however, they must receive approval from their Texas A&M academic advisors/professors.

Note:  Language requirements and/or other prerequisites should be considered when selecting other non-approved courses.

Once accepted into a program, please review the preparing to go abroad page for requirements that must be met before you depart.
