Apply for Aid

Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA)

Legislation enacted in Senate Bill 1528 (SB1528) and House Bill 1403 (HB1403) grants residence 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 deadline for submission for the 2017-2018 academic year is March 15, 2017.
  • 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.
