Texas Application for State Financial Aid

Students in the Class of 2022 and beyond will have to complete the FAFSA, the TASFA, or opt-out to graduate! Proof of TASFA submission will be a screen shot or printout of the online confirmation email. A copy of the completed paper application can also be provided as proof.

Students who are classified by the institution as a Texas Resident who cannot apply for federal financial aid, using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), are encouraged to complete the TASFA. TASFA applicants usually include students who are non-citizens or non-permanent residents of the United States. Before you begin, contact the institution you plan to attend to verify your eligibility to submit the TASFA. 

Both the online and paper TASFA are free for students to complete (do not complete both). You will NEVER be required to pay money to complete the State’s TASFA. Do not fill out both an online and paper TASFA – only one is necessary.

The 2024-2025 Online TASFA will be available after the FAFSA is released (by December 31, 2023). The priority deadline to submit for 2024-2025 is March 15, 2024. (The priority deadline for future years will return to January 15 for 2025-2026.)


TASFA Information – If you’re a foreign student or non–US citizen residing in Texas, you may still be eligible to be classified as a Texas resident for tuition purposes. If so, you may also be eligible to receive state financial aid.
