Students who will be seeking financial aid should be aware that the cost of a laptop computer can be added to the student's budget for purposes of computing financial aid under the guidelines of the U.S. Office of Education. Federal Regulations now allow the university to take into account the documented cost of your computer purchased for your studies when determining your eligibility for loan assistance. For the vast majority of students, the increased eligibility will be in the form of private student loan funding. If you have questions about the financial aid application process, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 361.593.3911 for detailed information before purchasing your laptop.
