Financial Aid & Scholarships Staff

Dear Prospective Student:

We are pleased that you are interested in attending Sam Houston State University and look forward to assisting you with financial planning for your educational future.

For some individuals, applying for financial aid can be a time consuming and seemingly complicated process. The Financial Aid & Scholarships website is designed to give easy indications to assist with the process. If additional help is required, you are encouraged to seek other brochures, consumer information or assistance from one of the counselors.

The Financial Aid & Scholarships Office is located in Estill Building, on the second floor, or you may call (936) 294-1774 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
