Standards of Progress — State of Texas


This program is no longer offered at the Community Colleges. Only students who are considered renewal awards can be eligible.


The initial Texas Equal Opportunity Grant (TEOG) funds are awarded to students with an expected family contribution (EFC) of 0-6,454. (2022/2023) The amount of the award depends on what the Texas Higher Education Coordinating recommends each year. They range from $500 to $1,707 per semester. To be eligible for TEOG, a student must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours (half-time) and have financial “need” as determined by their FAFSA application. The initial first-year award is based on the school's satisfactory academic progress policy which is a 2.0 Cumulative GPA and a 67% pace of completion rate. For the initial award, a student must not have exceeded 30 credit hours. The renewal year is based on a 2.5 cumulative GPA and a 75% pace of completion rate with maximum attempted credit hours not to exceed 75. This grant can be awarded up to 4 years. If a student fails to meet the academic standards of the grant, attempts too many hours, or if the student exceeds the 4-year maximum, they will no longer be eligible for the TEOG.
