Financial Aid

Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year ALL seniors in Texas must complete a FAFSA or TASFA in order to graduate from high school. Students who do not fill out a FAFSA/TASFA will have to turn in an opt out form signed by a guardian.

FAFSA/TASFA - Opens October 1, 2021

The FAFSA is opening on OCTOBER 1, 2021. Every student regardless of financial situation should fill out a FAFSA, see below for more information. 

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a federal form that provides grant and loan money to students based on EFC (Estimated Family Contribution).  BUT why fill it out if you won't use or qualify for federal funds...a lot of schools and scholarship organizations require the FAFSA before they will disburse money and award letters to students because they want to see their EFC.  Even if you don't receive federal funds for college it is a good idea for ALL students to fill out a FAFSA. Federal funds are awarded on a first come, first serve basis by colleges so it is important to fill the FAFSA out early and send it to schools you have applied to or might attend.  The priority deadline for Texas schools is January 15th.  www.fafsa.ed.gov

*Beginning in 2021-2022 every senior, regardless of financial situation, will be required to fill out a FAFSA or TASFA per Texas law

TASFA

The TASFA (Texas Application for State Financial Aid) is for foreign students or non-citizens who may be eligible to be classified as a Texas resident for tuition purposes.  If so, you may also be eligible to receive state financial aid.

*Beginning in 2021-2022 every senior, regardless of financial situation, will be required to fill out a FAFSA or TASFA per Texas law
