Texas institutions of higher education use the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) to determine a student’s eligibility for state and institutional aid. This application is only available to Texas residents who are ineligible for federal student aid.

Each year, the TASFA becomes available for the upcoming application cycle on October 1. Students are encouraged to submit their TASFA form and supporting documentation as soon as possible after this date. Whenever possible, students should try to apply by the state and institution’s priority deadline, as more financial aid will be available.

In Texas, the state priority deadline is January 15 of the current academic year. All General Academic Teaching Institutions must use this date as the priority deadline. All other public and private/independent institutions are encouraged to do the same.

Watch this video to learn more about helping students access financial aid for higher education through the TASFA.
