Parents & Families

Choosing a university can be challenging for student and their families – so here is everything you need to make the decision to become an Aggie. Whether your student is a first-time or multi-generational Aggie, we welcome you to the Panhandle State family.

How can I access my student’s information?

In general, your dependent student will need to add you to proxy access in order for us to go over any information in regard to their financial aid. They can do so on their Self-Service portal. Also, you must be the parent on the FAFSA in order for us to go over any information related to the FAFSA.

Why doesn’t my student qualify for certain financial aid?

Certain financial aid funds, including SEOG (Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant) and FWS (Federal Work-Study) are based on financial need, the date the FAFSA is signed, and when we receive any additional documentation our office requests. If your child is not awarded in these programs, this would indicate that either financial need was not met, or funds were exhausted by the time we were able to process your child’s financial aid package.
