Disclaimer - Please read before proceeding.

By clicking below, you acknowledge that:

  • This calculator provides only a rough approximation of financial aid (and even then, only if accurate data is entered into the calculator). The estimate is not final or binding on the Federal Secretary of Education, the institution, or the State of Texas.
  • Not all students will qualify for all of the aid that the calculator indicates may be available.
  • The calculator should not be used as the primary means of selecting a school.
  • The calculator is not designed to replace the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA must be completed to demonstrate eligibility for federal assistance under Title IV. A link to the FAFSA is available on the results page of the calculator via the "Apply for Aid Now" button.
  • Students that are classified as a Texas Resident who cannot apply for federal financial aid using the FAFSA are encouraged to complete the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA). To review the FAFSA filing requirements, visit or visit the financial aid office at the institution you plan to attend.
  • The deadline for the TASFA is determined by each individual institution of higher education that uses the application. Please contact the financial aid office at the institution to confirm if they currently accept the TASFA and what supporting documents they require (i.e. tax transcripts, W2's, other income information).
  • The calculator is not designed to replace a complete financial aid award package provided by a college financial aid office.

Families who have high incomes or significant assets will not receive as accurate an estimate of financial aid eligibility. Please contact a financial aid officer at the institution you plan to attend for more information.

The owners and licensees of the calculator and its underlying software disclaim any liability arising from the use of or reliance upon the calculator by any person.
