Texas Completion Repayment Grant


Texas Completion Repayment Grant

The Texas Completion Repayment Grant Program is part of the $94.6 million fund established to provide essential emergency support to college students who have been most significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is designed to assist students who have an outstanding balance at Odessa College and have not earned a credential or degree.

The maximum award per student is $1,000 upon verification of enrollment. Your debt will be cleared once enrollment in a specified term is confirmed by OC.


To be eligible, students must:

  • be a Texas resident;
  • be a full or part-time student OR intend to enroll as a full or part-time student at Odessa College or another institution of higher education;
  • enroll in a spring, summer or fall 2022 term in a certificate or degree program at OC or another institution of higher education;
  • have incurred debt/past due balance prior to fall 2022;
  • have previously completed at least one college-level course of at least one semester credit hour;
  • have a valid Social Security number;
  • register with Selective Service (if the student is male); and
  • complete application for Completion Repayment Grant aid.


Now is the time for you to come back to Odessa College and finish your degree in a high wage, high demand field. Complete the application to determine if you qualify for the Texas Completion Repayment Program.




If you qualify, a representative from the college will contact you to discuss registering for classes to absolve your debt. Should you have any questions or need additional information please contact studentaccounts@odessa.edu.
