Tuition and Emergency Loans
The Texas A&M University-Commerce Institutional Loan program offers two types of short term loans—tuition loans and emergency loans.
Tuition loans pay the full amount of tuition/fees only and cannot be used to pay housing or other university charges (including UPD traffic tickets). Students do not receive a check with this loan-a credit is made to offset tuition/fee charges. Tuition loans can cover course fees as well, but not late registration fees. Applications for Tuition Loans must be submitted by the 20th class day for Fall/Spring terms and the 15th class day for Summer terms.
Emergency loan proceeds are intended to pay educational expenses (books, supplies, etc). Loan limits will vary between terms. Support documentation may be required with your application. If you have set yourself up for direct deposit refunds then your emergency loan will be disbursed to you that way. Otherwise your emergency loan will be disbursed by check and will be available within 2-3 working days. Checks can be picked up at the payment windows in the McDowell Administration Building or they can be mailed upon request. Emergency loans cannot be disbursed before the first class day of the semester.
Eligibility for short-term loans:
1. Must be enrolled in the given term.
2. Must be in good standing with the university.
3. 2.0 GPA (undergraduate) or a 3.0 GPA (graduate) at A&M-Commerce only.
4. Limited to one emergency loan or one bookcredit per semester.
Tuition loans cannot be used for courses offered through Colloquy Global E-Learning (MS-GBEC) or for Academic Partnerships programs including Executive MBA, MS-Applied Criminology, BS-Business Administration, Masters of Education or Doctor of Education. Please contact our office at Student.Accounts@tamuc.edu if you have any questions about your eligibility for a tuition loan.
Submission of an application does not guarantee approval. Loan funds are limited and we may not be able to accommodate all applicants even if eligibility requirements are met. Students are limited to one emergency loan or one bookcredit per semester. Exceptions to eligibility guidelines or loan procedures will be made strictly at the discretion of the university. The Loan Office reserves the right to deny loan approval to any student based on past payment performance or other factors that negatively impact credit risk. Contact Student Accounts at 903-886-5050 for more information or refer to information on the main Student Accounts Web page for current updates.
