The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form you need to fill out to obtain financial aid from the federal government. Each year over 13 million students who file the FAFSA get more than $120 billion in grants, work-study, and low interest loans from the U.S. Department of Education. Colleges also use the FAFSA to determine which students get financial aid -- and how much they'll get. The FAFSA asks for information about you and your family's finances, including tax returns.
There are many different types of financial aid. Some are based on financial need and some are based on academic performance. Others are tied to a student's or family's ability to borrow. Not all colleges and universities participate in all programs, but the more you know about financial aid, the better prepared you'll be. College for All Texans provides many links to several different kinds of financial aid available to students attending Texas colleges and universities.
