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.highered.texas.gov/our-work/empowering-our-students/tasfa/ for SB1528/HB1403 students to apply for need-based state funds. Copies are also available in our office for pick-up.

If you are eligible to complete the FAFSA form, you should not complete the TASFA application.
