but you are classified as a Texas resident and therefore are eligible to pay the Texas in-state tuition rate, use this 2015-2016 TASFA application. To use this application, your classification as a Texas resident must not be due to a waiver, such as an in-state scholarship or an assistantship.
If you have been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), we encourage you to complete the FAFSA. Although DACA students are not eligible for federal student aid, you still may be eligible for state or college aid, and submitting a FAFSA can help you access those other types of aid. To begin your FAFSA, you must enter your Social Security Number. While completing the FAFSA, you must answer the "Are you a US citizen?" question as "No, I am not a citizen or eligible noncitizen." If you filed taxes for 2014, you may also be able to transfer your tax information using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA.
The federal government selects FAFSAs to be verified by the financial aid department. Our school may also select FAFSAs to be verified. During verification, a financial aid counselor must confirm that certain data elements on the FAFSA are correct before a student may receive any financial aid. In order to have payment arrangements made by the tuition due date, please turn in all requested verification items by the deadlines below:
Fall 2015 Priority Verification Deadline: July 1, 2015
Fall 2015 Final Verification Deadline: November 15, 2015
Spring 2016 Priority Verification Deadline: December 15, 2015
Spring 2016 Final Verification Deadline: April 15, 2016
Failure to submit documentation by the final verification deadline may result in loss of financial aid eligibility. Our office is not required to complete verification after the final deadline has passed. Students may appeal to the Director of Financial Aid for an extension to the deadline.
Official tax return information from the IRS is required as part of the verification process. When completing your FAFSA online, you have the option of using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. Please see page 3 of the verification worksheet for further instructions. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is the preferred method of submitting tax information to the school because it is the quickest, easiest, and most secure way to submit your tax information. ~
