Scholarships and Financial Assistance
All students are encouraged to contact the TAMU Scholarship office for further information regarding available aid and to calculate the cost of attending graduate school at Texas A&M University. It is also recommended that all students complete and submit a FAFSA or TASFA.
Academic Common Market
The MSAT program participates in the Academic Common Market (ACM). The ACM is a cooperative agreement among 16 Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) states allowing students to pursue out-of-state academic degree programs at the in-state tuition rate when the resident state does not offer the academic program at one of their public institutions. To be eligible to apply for ACM you must: be a resident of one of the SREB states that do not offer a CAATE accredited professional level master's program in athletic training; be accepted into the MSAT program; and apply to the ACM through your home state's ACM website. For further information about the ACM, you can check with your home institution’s ACM representative.
Note: Currently, the Master of Science program is only listed on the ACM sites for GA and LA. Only students from those states have applied for ACM for the MSAT program.
