To receive most types of financial aid—including federal, state, and institutional grants, loans, and work-study eligibility—you must complete either the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or download Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA). These applications are to be submitted every year. The priority deadline at UHD for the FAFSA is April 1 and January 15 for the TASFA application.

For more information on submitting the FAFSA or the TASFA, visit the FAFSA 101 or TASFA 101.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for financial aid the applicant must be seeking a degree at UHD (Bachelor’s or Master’s). Students who are not seeking a degree at UHD will not be eligible for financial aid.

Which Application?

Students should submit either the FAFSA or the TASFA, not both.  If you are not sure which application you should submit, visit College for all Texans website for more information.
