Hey guys I am an international applying to TAMU. I am an auto-admit but due to financial constraints wouldn't be able to go to TAMU without finaid. I really appreciate the fact that TAMU gives financial aid to international student like me who aspires to be an aggie.

Anyway. I am wondering

1. how much TAMU gives on average to an international like me with financial difficultyion

2. When is the new international financial aid form for 2014 fall semster going to be ready??

Thank you very very much for your comments and suggestions.

    Hi, I am an international student too, currently a freshman. I got my financial need calculated, but at the end received nothing because it seems they only give aid to some int'l students, so don't rely on that for covering tuition cost

    An international student here too.

    Tamu does not give much financial aid to international students. It depends on your EFC, which will be determined by the university based on the information you provide on your ISFAA. But if they calculate your EFC to be more than 5000$ , then you will be eligible for even less fin aid .
    Apply as early as possible.
    Keep checking their website for the ISFAA , i don't really know when its out but it should be available around nov-dec.

    Hope I helped!
    Good luck!

    Kind of reviving the thread here. I'm not sure if anyone can confirm if TAMU accepts the ISFAA for incoming freshmen or only currently enrolled students? Anyone know if an incoming freshman is even eligible to apply?
