Resources for Tarleton Online Students

We provide our online learners with the same opportunities available at our physical campus locations. Some of the available resources include:

Paying for School

Most of our students — 80% — receive financial aid, including over $9 million in Tarleton and private college scholarships each year. Fill out our online General Scholarship Application, and submit your official high school or college transcripts, as well as your SAT/ACT college exam scores. More than 500 different Tarleton and private scholarships are available through this one application. After submitting your application, you will automatically be matched with any of the college scholarships in our system that you qualify for, based on the information you provide. You do not have to apply for each scholarship individually.

For financial aid assistance, please contact Amanda Petrosian by emailing [email protected] or call 817-717-3682. We will be happy to assist you with applying for financial aid, or explaining the different aid options that are available to you after you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
