State Financial Aid (TASFA)

Students who meet the residency requirements under House Bill 1403/Senate Bill 1528 are encouraged to complete the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA).

Submit the TASFA directly to the campus financial aid office. Supporting income documentation (e.g., tax transcript for both student and parent) must accompany the application.

Financial aid will verify student eligibility using the TASFA completed application and by accessing institutional records (e.g. should call the residency office or search the campus’s student information system).

Student must be classified as a Texas resident in order to be eligible for state funding. A non-resident who pays a resident rate due to a tuition waiver is not a resident for the purpose of this application.
