The Texas Guaranteed Tuition Fund will pay for the number of tuition hours that have been purchased under the student's contract.

Mandatory fees that all students are required to pay for enrollment are covered for a limited amount of semesters (please contact the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Fund additional information). The Texas Guaranteed Tuition Fund does not cover laboratory fees, course-specific fees, room, board, books, sport passes, enhancements fees, field trip fees, study abroad trip fees, optional fees, 3-peat fee, etc.

Texas A&M Sponsored International Programs
Students participating on a Texas A&M faculty-led program, reciprocal educational exchange program, or credit-bearing intern/research/volunteer experience and receiving Texas A&M credit may request to use their pre-paid tuition plan by contacting Specialized Student Billing. For Texas A&M sponsored programs, Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan (TGTP) is applied toward the Texas A&M tuition and required fees incurred by enrolling in the program course(s) and is not applied toward the study abroad administrative fees and other travel expenses.
Transfer Credit Study Abroad Programs
For students studying abroad independently through a U.S. university, an accredited international institution, or a third-party program provider for transfer credits, TGTP can be applied toward a portion of the program cost based on the students’ course load abroad (enrollment in the SABR placeholder course). Note: TGTP does not cover the full program cost. Therefore, please expect to be responsible for paying the difference.
For transfer credit programs coordinated by Title IV eligible institutions, the TGTP main office can send payments directly to an approved institution. To initiate the direct payment process, please contact TGTP at 1-800-445-GRAD (4723), Option 2 and provide 60 days advance notice of your program’s final payment due date.
For transfer credit programs coordinated by third-party providers and non-Title IV eligible institutions, the Study Abroad Programs Office will facilitate third-party billing. To initiate the third-party billing process, students must complete the pre-approval process for Transfer Credit Study Abroad Programs and email the Study Abroad Programs Office request 120 days in advance of their program departure date.
As a part of the third-party billing process, students must pay the application fee and confirmation deposit owed to the program provider/host institution by its billing due dates. The remaining program fee is deferred and billed to the students’ Howdy account. The estimated TGTP disbursement amount available is determined based on the current fiscal state rate per credit hour and the students’ course load abroad. For questions about this process, please email the Study Abroad Programs Office.
