FAFSA’s priority deadline for Texas set for Jan. 15

January 2, 2019

With a new year on the horizon, many high school seniors are shifting their focus toward their college destinations, including filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Potential scholars and current college students should remember to file their FAFSA forms by the Jan. 15 priority deadline for the 2019-20 school year.

High school seniors who are planning on staying in Texas for college are encouraged by the U.S. Department of Education to submit their FAFSA forms by Jan. 15 to receive maximum consideration.

However, each university or college may have a different deadline for in-house student aid.

For those who are plan on attending college out of state, visit the FAFSA website to see your state’s priority deadline.

Things you will need when applying for federal aid online include your social security number or alien registration number, federal income tax returns and a FSA ID to log in.

The Department of Education recently announced the launch of their new app called myStudentAid! for students and preparers to file on their mobile device.

Visit your university or community college website to see when is their priority deadline to submit federal aid applications for the 2019-20 school year or contact their financial aid office.
