  • Question:

    I'm interested in your college but I had a few questions. I moved to Texas with my boyfriend a year ago, I do not have a job, I have been a homemaker and he has been the one to provide for us. I was going to school before we moved here and I would like to continue my education now, since we have lived here for a year. I was wondering if I were to enroll for your college and apply for FAFSA, would FAFSA cover all my tuition and fees? If not, how can I go about applying for scholarships and/or loans to help pay for college? I didn't know if financial aid would be different in Texas, we have never moved out of state before so I'm not sure exactly how my financial aid would differ. Thank you in advance for answering my questions.


    Thank you for your interest in College of the Mainland. The amount of financial aid you may receive through the FAFSA is based on several factors including, but not limited to, your overall financial aid eligibility as determined by the FAFSA (This looks at your income, the number of household members in college and your household income). In addition to your FAFSA results, other factors that impact your financial aid eligibility include your residency status and the number of hours you register to take.

    College of the Mainland also participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan program and your eligibility is determined by your FAFSA results, the program you major in and the number of hours you have attempted towards completing that program. COM students must complete the FAFSA and submit a “Loan Request Form” to apply for loans.

    For information about scholarships, contact College of the Mainland Foundation (409-933-8508) and speak with Ms. Tammy Stafford.

    We are very excited at the prospect of having you enroll here! If I have not answered all of your questions, please contact me and I will be happy to address any other questions you have about COM and/or the financial aid process.

  • Question:

    I am looking at buying a apple laptop to use for school would the software be comparable to use with COM's systems or should I look for another brand?


     An apple will work fine.  I would  recommend purchasing Parallels software from our software store (  This software will allow you to run all Windows based software ensuring all software will work on the Apple computer.
