Texas could help more poor students afford college if it capped the amount awarded under the TEXAS Grant financial aid program, state lawmakers were told Wednesday.
To help parents and students, starting next fall, the actual cost of college will be spelled out in a one-page summary. The financial information is called a “shopping sheet.”
The responsibility of paying for college is shifting; it’s falling more now on students and their families, as state funding declines.
Thousands of North Texans are painfully familiar with the issue of student loan debt. Now, students drowning in debt at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) are getting some extra attention.
Leading financial aid expert Mark Kantrowitz recently posted a paper online that outlines ways to help reduce student debt.
Zach Williams studies diligently in pursuit of his dream. “I’d like to go to the Air Force Academy, go into the military and be a pilot,” Williams said.
Some parents are accusing an Arlington business of scaring people, across the country, into paying a high price to get help planning for college.

Financing your kid’s college education in Texas could become a lot more difficult. State lawmakers are proposing cuts of more than 40-percent in financial aid for college students.
