The Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) is a free application that collects information to help determine eligibility for state (or institutional) financial aid programs administered by institutions of higher education in the state of Texas.
Students classified as Texas residents who are not eligible to 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 studentaid.gov or contact the financial aid office at the institution you plan to attend. The federal application covers federal and state financial aid opportunities. If you meet the FAFSA filing requirements, then you should submit a completed FAFSA. DO NOT COMPLETE BOTH THE FAFSA AND TASFA.
ALERT: The State Priority Deadline was extended to March 15, 2024 for the 2024-2025 application year by the THECB. This is only for the specified application year and will revert to January 15 for future years. It is important to complete and submit this application with all required documentation to the financial aid office on or before to be considered for the most financial aid possible.
More information on the TASFA can be found at www.highered.texas.gov/our-work/empowering-our-students/tasfa/.
The 2024-2025 Onlineis not currently available. To ensure students maximize state financial aid funding, we encourage students to complete the paper once it’s available in December, 2023. Please check back for updates.
The 2023-2024 Online TASFA is available by visiting https://www.highered.texas.gov/tasfa. Please follow up with the college you plan to attend to confirm if you should submit the TASFA and to determine if additional documentation will be needed.
