Applications for 2022-2023 financial aid, FAFSA and TAFSA, are open! Class of 2022, if you are planning to go to college, congratulations! Now is the time to start filling out your Free Financial Aid Application.

What is financial aid? Financial aid is money from the Federal Government (FAFSA – Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or the State Government (TASFA – Texas Application for State Financial Aid) in the form of scholarships (free money), loans students and / or work- study possibilities (scholarship).

This application will provide institutions with the information necessary to determine the amount of financial assistance to which you are entitled for your college expenses. Don’t think you qualify? Fill it out anyway! It is important to note that this application is required for certain scholarship selection processes.

Complete the free FAFSA application by visiting www.fafsa.gov. Do you prefer a mobile application? The FAFSA form can be found on the myStudentAid app, available on the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).
