Texas Links College Readiness To Financial Aid

The House tentatively passed S.B. 28 to provide students who have demonstrated college readiness with priority access to TEXAS Grants, a need-based financial aid program. Students must meet two of four standards: enroll in the distinguished academic program or take 12 hours of college credit; pass tests in the Texas Success Initiative Act, the SAT or ACT; rank in the top third of their class; and be successful in math beyond algebra II.
