The A&M-San Antonio Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is here to assists students in obtaining financial assistance in order to supplement their own contribution to a college education. A&M-SA offers a variety of federal, state, institutional, and private fund(s) to assist eligible students in funding their education. The financial gap between the cost of education and monies available from the family can be complemented by grants, loans, scholarships and/or student employment. Our office updates the types of aid available annually and therefore it is encouraged for students to periodically check on their financial aid status.
