Texas Application for Student Financial Aid

If you are a Texas resident but are not eligible for federal student aid because you are not a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen, you may submit the TASFA to apply for Texas state financial aid only. Certain categories of foreign-born and immigrant students in the state of Texas can meet state requirements for residency. Such students are able to pay the resident tuition rate while attending public institutions of higher education in Texas.


To be considered, all students must:


State & Federal money intended to help students meet the cost of attendance.

Money borrowed through the government loan programs. 

Gift aid awarded by the CTC Foundation Office or outside organizations.

State & Federal program that allows students to earn a portion of their educational expenses through part-time employment.

  • If you are trying to budget for the upcoming school year, check out the estimated cost of attendance (COA) for the specific academic year. More...
