Complete the FAFSA and accept financial aid awards

By January 15, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Even if you think you’re not likely to qualify for need-based aid, it’s still a good idea to apply. If you complete your FAFSA, you'll receive a financial aid notification in early spring, which will direct you to view and accept your financial aid package on CASH. For more information on this process, please visit the Understanding Your Aid page on the Texas One Stop website.
