Sources of Student Aid for First-Time Freshmen
2004 - 2014

Although grant aid from federal and State sources has remained relatively stable over the last several years, TICUA member institutions have increased the amount of aid available to students.

92% of first-time freshmen attending TICUA member institutions receive financial aid - 77% from the institutions themselves, 12% from the State (including lottery scholarships), and 11% from the federal government.
