The Texas B-On-Time Loan is a zero-interest loan for eligible Texas students. The entire amount borrowed can be forgiven provided that the borrower meets the forgiveness requirements. This loan is funded by the state of Texas and repayment is made to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
The Office of Student Financial Aid awards the B-On Time Loan based upon student eligibility and availability of funds. Student eligibility is based on the FAFSA and other program requirements.
