The 2024-2025 TASFA

The 2024-2025 Online TASFA is not currently available. To ensure students maximize state financial aid funding, we encourage students to complete the paper TASFA. Please check back for updates.

The Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) is used by participating institutions of higher education in Texas to collect information to help determine a student’s eligibility for state financial aid.

Who can submit a TASFA?

Students who are classified by the institution as a Texas Resident who cannot apply for federal financial aid, using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), are encouraged to complete the TASFA. To see if you qualify for the FAFSA, please visit www.studentaid.gov. Do not complete both the FAFSA and TASFA.

TASFA applicants usually include students who are non-citizens or non-permanent residents of the United States. Before you begin, contact the institution you plan to attend to verify your eligibility to submit the TASFA. If you need help deciding which application (TASFA or FAFSA) to complete, start here.

Is the TASFA free?

Yes! Both the online and paper TASFA are free for students to complete (do not complete both). You will NEVER be required to pay money to complete the State’s TASFA.

Is there a deadline to complete the TASFA?

Deadlines vary by institution. We recommend you contact the college you plan to attend to confirm final deadlines. Students should apply as soon as possible to maximize their state financial aid options since funding is limited.

Many institutions use the state priority deadline of January 15 for the upcoming award year. The priority deadline is not a hard deadline so applicants can still submit a TASFA after this date. Applications that are submitted before the deadline will receive priority consideration for available funding.

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.

Looking for the TASFA in Spanish?

The Online TASFA is not available in Spanish. You can refer to the paper TASFA en español to help complete the Online TASFA in English. Otherwise, you can complete the Spanish paper application and you must send it directly to the Financial aid Office at the college you plan to attend. Do not fill out both an online and paper TASFA – only one is necessary.
