Your Financial Aid Application - FAFSA or TASFA?

The Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) is used to collect information to help determine eligibility for state financial aid programs that are administered by institutions of higher education in the state of Texas. Students that are classified 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. To review the FAFSA filing requirements, visit or visit the financial aid office at the institution you plan to attend.

The Texas state priority deadline for many institutions of higher education is January 15, 2023 for the 2023-24 award year. It is recommended that applicants complete and submit this application and any other required documentation to the financial aid office prior to the state priority deadline date.


The 2023-2024 Online TASFA is not yet available. To ensure students can maximize financial aid funding, we are encouraging students to complete the paper TASFA starting Oct. 1, 2022. Please follow up with the college you plan to attend to confirm the application process and to determine if additional documentation will be needed.
