We know that getting a graduate degree is a big commitment, both in time and money. We provide numerous opportunities for scholarships and grants that can help ease your educational experience.

To make graduate education more accessible to working students, TCU offers Professional Development Grants for part-time graduate students enrolled in credit courses. Unlike student loans, grants do not need to be repaid. The grants pay one-fourth tuition credit for up to six semester hours for each semester. A total of six hours is allowed for all summer semesters combined.


  • Year-round part-time students enrolled for eight credit hours per semester or less.
  • Must be admitted to TCU before application will be considered.
  • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
  • Must be at least 22 years of age by the final day of late registration.
  • Must be in good academic and financial standing with all colleges or universities previously attended.
  • Adjusted gross income does not exceed:
    • $87,954* for independent, single students without dependents.
    • $109,157* for married or single students with dependents.
