It may soon be easier for students of low-income families to attend schools within the A&M system.

Starting Thursday, The A&M System Board of Regents will consider approving the Texas A&M University System Promise Program.

The program would provide free tuition and fees across the system to full-time students whose families earn less than $30,000 a year.

The plan builds upon tuition assistance policies currently in effect at several other universities in the system.

The board also will consider granting the annual Regents Professor Awards to 13 recipients and Regents Fellow Service Awards to five recipients. To date, the awards program has honored 171 employees who have made exemplary contributions to their university or agency and to the people of Texas.

Regents will also discuss several construction projects, consider approval for a specialized educational and research facility at the Costa Rica Center of Texas A&M, and will consider approving a new Bachelor of Music in performance degree with instrumental, vocal and piano emphases at Tarleton.

In executive session, the board will consider several appointments throughout the A&M System.

The board meeting goes through Friday.
