Financial Aid begins disbursing 10 days before classes begin for Fall, Spring, Summer 1 and Summer 2. On the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the week before classes begin for Fall and Spring, and Monday and Tuesday for Summer 1 and Summer 2, students showing a credit balance due to disbursed financial aid and scholarships may request a book voucher of up to $600.00, or the amount of their credit balance if it is less than $600.00.
To apply for a book voucher, please print off and fill out the form below. Instructions for application of the book voucher are on the form.
Please note: Students with any holds on their account cannot receive a book voucher until their hold(s) is/are removed.
New Student Check Sheet
Starting a new year at a new school can be overwhelming. We have designed a check sheet for Freshmen and Transfer Students to help guide you through all the steps you need to complete to manage your financial obligations as a student of West Texas A&M University. This form is also distributed at New Student Orientations and Transfer Student Orientations held throughout the summer.
Freshman Cost Estimate Sheet
We have prepared this cost estimation sheet to give incoming freshman an estimate for the cost of their Fall 2016 semester. The tuition and fee cost is given at 15 hours, and all meal plans are set at the minimum required, (175 meals). The variation comes from the cost of each housing option, both double and private rooms with the exception of Buff Hall and Conner Hall, which are both private room only options. At the bottom of this form, we have provided a work space to help students and parents determine if the student could be awarded enough aid to pay their bill in full, or if they may have some out of pocket expense.
Returning Student Check Sheet
Our students returning to WTAMU can sometimes forget important steps when managing their financial obligations as a student of West Texas A&M University. Beginning Fall 2015, a major change is the priority payment deadline for priority registered students. Previously, accepted financial aid would protect a schedule from deletion. This will no longer be enough to protect a schedule from deletion. The priority payment deadline falls after the 10 day window for financial aid disbursement, so students must have their aid disbursed and not anticipated to meet their payment deadline obligation. Use this check sheet to be sure you don't miss any steps!
1098-T Help Form
Each January, West Texas A&M University issues each student billed for tuition and fees a 1098-T form. This form is accessible through Buff Advisor on the 1098-T link. We cannot offer tax advise regarding the 1098-T form, but we can can explain each box that is on the form.
