Apply for Aid

Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA)

Legislation enacted in Senate Bill 1528 (SB1528) and House Bill 1403 (HB1403) grants resident status for tuition purposes to certain non-resident students. SB1528/HB1403 students are not eligible for federal funds and therefore cannot complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

An alternate form, the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA), is available at www.collegeforalltexans.com for SB1528/HB1403 students to apply for need-based state funds. Copies are also available in our office for pick-up.

  • TASFA funds are extremely limited, so applicants are encouraged to apply early. The priority date for submission for the 2019-2020 academic year is January 15, 2019. (The 2019-2020 TASFA application will be available in October 2018)
  • TASFA awards at UTA are made from the TEXAS Grant fund.

Please refer to our TEXAS Grant section to review eligibility requirements for the program.
