I'm a transfer student from Colorado. I got admitted to a school in Texas, and from the looks of my financial aid, I won't be attending. I got awarded for the Pell grant as well as unsubsidized and subsidized loans. When I asked about being funded for the need based state grants(FESOG and TPEG) they told me I was not eligible since I'm an out of state transfer student. The requirements listed on there site to receive the award are you have to be a Texas resident and you have to show financial need. I don't see how this is possible if I meet all the requirements. I am classified as an in state student, and my EFC is 0. They are basically telling me throughout pursuing my degree I will never receive state grants. Has anyone had this problem before? If so, did you receive state grants the following semester? Is it even worth going to their school?
