The Office of Financial Aid at Sul Ross State University is staffed by a team of mission-driven professionals. Financial Aid’s objective is to create and maintain a courteous, educated, equitable, and caring environment for students and their families. We work diligently to monitor all federal, state, and institutional aid funding to assist students and their families in maximizing aid resources. Additionally, we strive to eliminate financial obstacles so that students can achieve a higher education while we conduct ourselves in a manner that is professional, consistent, confidential, honest, and efficient.

All members of the SRSU Financial Aid team are active participants in the Texas Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (TASFAA). Adhering to strict Federal and State guidelines, our staff ensures fair and compliant distribution of aid to students.

Our commitment to staying updated on regulations is evident through regular attendance at TASFAA’s New Aid Officer Workshops and annual training events. By remaining current, we provide accurate and informed guidance to students.

SRSU Financial Aid staff are readily available to counsel students on available funding opportunities, aiming to minimize potential student debt from loans. Our goal is to empower students to make well-informed financial decisions throughout their academic journey.
