The 2022-2023 financial aid applications, FAFSA and TAFSA, are open! Class of 2022, if you plan to attend college, congratulations! It is now time to begin completing 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 state government (TASFA – Texas Application for State Financial Aid) in the form of grants (free money), student loans, and/or work-study opportunities (grant).

This application will provide institutions with the information needed to determine how much financial aid you qualify for towards your college expenses. Don’t think you qualify? Fill it out anyway! It is important to note that this application is required for some scholarship selection processes.

Fill out the free FAFSA application by visiting www.fafsa.gov. Prefer a mobile app? The FAFSA form is on the myStudentAid app, available on the App Store (iOS) or on Google Play (Android).
