Parents of high school seniors—what is something that you can do now that will help your student attend college or a post-secondary program next year? File the FAFSA or the TASFA.

Not sure if filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or the TASFA (Texas Application for State Financial Aid) is right for you? Here are the facts:

• There is no income cut-off to qualify for federal student aid. Many factors besides income are taken into account.

• Filing a FAFSA or a TASFA form is the only way to become eligible for most state, federal, and institutional scholarships, grants, work-study, and other types of financial aid.

• Some colleges won’t even consider you for any of their scholarships (including academic scholarships) until you’ve submitted a FAFSA.

Financial Aid Workshops

After January 1st, LISD will offer workshops for parents and students to assist with completing the FAFSA. Please refer back for upcoming dates.
