Financial Aid: FAFSA & TASFA

What is FAFSA/TASFA?

In 2019, Texas legislatures passed a bill that makes FAFSA or TASFA completion a requirement beginning with students enrolled in 12th grade during the 2021–2022 school year. Each student must do one of the following in order to graduate:

  • Complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Complete and submit a Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA).
  • Submit a signed opt-out form.
