    Pay for College

    What is financial aid? Watch for a quick overview to learn how to fund your college career!

  • The cost to attend college varies by institution, but there are several sources of financial aid (money specifically for college) available to students. The primary way to find out what types of financial aid you are eligible to receive is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA). You should complete the FAFSA or the TASFA, not both. Which one is right for you? Find out below.
    *Seniors - College financial aid application (FAFSA or TASFA) opens October 1, but you can order any tax transcripts .

  • Verification

    After completing the FAFSA or TASFA, many students get selected for a process called verification. The verification process requires colleges and universitites to collect documentation from students to verify that the information provided on the FAFSA or TASFA is accurate. Here are two resources to help students who have been selected for verification get through the process and to financial aid awards:
