Students voice opinion on financial aid legislation reform

The Texas legislature will be voting on whether to reduce tuition by eliminating student sponsored financial aid and freezing tuition for four years.

Student sponsored financial aid is a state mandated program that sets aside the portion of each┬ástudents’ tuition to go toward scholarships for lower income students. Texas legislators want to get rid of this because they believe that this money should come from the state, not the students.

The Cougar asked students whether or not they agreed with this decision. This is what they had to say.
