Emergency Assistance

The Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) Emergency Regent's Grant provides limited emergency financial support to currently enrolled undergraduate degree-seeking Texas resident students who are unable to meet essential expenses due to unforeseen hardship. Decisions regarding disbursement of funds are made on a case-by-case basis. Awards are not considered loans and do not require repayment. Some funds may be considered income and are therefore subject to federal taxes. This grant will affect your financial aid package as it may not surpass your cost of attendance.

This is an annual assistance program if approved. This grant may cover school expenses such as tuition and fees, textbooks, school supplies, lodging and meals.
