Summer and fall 2024 due dates are now available. Go to the Due Dates page to learn more.
Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan

The Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan (TGTP) will pay for the number of tuition hours purchased under the student's contract.

Students will be responsible for paying additional tuition hours to the university that are not covered by their plan. Mandatory fees that all students are required to pay for enrollment are covered for a limited number of semesters (please contact the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Fund for additional information). The Texas Guaranteed Tuition Fund does not cover laboratory fees, course-specific fees, room, board, books, sports passes, enhancements fees, field trip fees, study abroad trip fees, optional fees, or 3-peat fees.

    • Students will be responsible for any charges not covered by TGTP.
    • The conditional credit does not signify payment.
  2. A Non-Resident Tuition Waiver will be applied to student accounts for semesters in that TGTP benefits are used.
  3. Texas A&M University will invoice TGTP for eligible charges for the semester after the 20th class day.
  4. Once payment is received from TGTP, adjustments may be made according to the benefits available.
TGTP Non-Resident Waiver

  • If the student wishes to change their Residency status, please visit the Registrar’s website for further information.
Plan Removal  

Students and guardians may request to remove their plan before the first due date of any semester or before the semester begins. The conditional credit may not be removed after school has started.

Removal requests can be sent to ssb@tamu.edu with a valid UIN, the student’s full name, and the term for which the student is requesting TGTP be removed.

Summer Semester  
Students must submit a request to Student Business Services via the Request TGTP before 5:00 pm on the first due date of a Summer semester. The request to use TGTP funds for the Summer will cover the entire semester the student is enrolled for; amounts will not be prorated.

Fee Term Benefit and TGTP  
Texas A&M University will bill the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan for all benefits available. 
Exhaustion of Benefits  
The student must notify Student Business Services when hours and fee terms are running out of their plan. Failure to notify Student Business Services may result in an unexpected balance due to the student account. This is also called charge-back due to an insufficient TGTP benefit(s). When a student's hours or fee benefits become insufficient, the plan will no longer automatically apply to the student account for the fall and spring semesters. Students will need to contact Student Business Services before the first day of classes to request to use any balance of benefits in the event this occurs. Students who fail to notify Student Business Services of their intent to use their plan before classes begin may be unable to use it that semester.
Graduate and Professional Tuition and Fees  
Students may use their plan toward graduate school at TAMU. The plan will pay the undergraduate reimbursement rates for the type of plan purchased. Students will be responsible for amounts billed over the state average. Students can use all of their remaining plan benefits at one time to pay towards graduate or professional programs; please view the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan Student Handbook and choose Page 15 on the Table of Contents for more information. Contact the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan for additional information on unused plan hours and benefits.
TGTP Office  
If you want to verify your hours or get more information about your plan, The Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan Office can contact the State Comptroller's office at (800) 531-5441. This information is also available on the back of the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan ID card. For more information, please visit the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Fund (formerly the Texas Tomorrow Fund).
