The Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA)

The Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) collects information to help determine eligibility for state (or institutional) financial aid programs administered by institutions of higher education in the state of Texas.

Students classified as Texas Residents who are not eligible to apply for federal financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are encouraged to complete the TASFA.

You must download the application and submit it to the financial aid office:

Office of Financial Aid
BC Central, E-101
Brazosport College
500 College Drive
Lake Jackson, TX 77566

Once you have submitted your application, you may continue with the same steps listed on the "Apply for Financial Aid" page. We encourage you to submit your TASFA by the priority deadlines for the semester you plan on attending. 

Remember that you must apply every year, regardless of whether you're a new or continuing student.

Priority Deadlines

Make sure to submit all financial aid requirements by the priority deadlines. If you complete your file after the priority deadline, we cannot guarantee your award will be processed in time to pay for classes, and you may need to arrange a payment plan or pay in full.

Gathering the Documents Needed to Apply

The TASFA questions ask for information about you (your name, date of birth, address, etc.) and about your financial situation. Depending on your circumstances, you might need the following information or documents as you fill out the application:

  • Federal tax information or tax returns including IRS W-2 information, for you (and your spouse, if you are married), and for your parents if you are a dependent student:
    • IRS 1040
    • Foreign tax return, IRS 1040NR, or IRS 1040NR-EZ
    • Tax return for Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, or Palau
  • Male students, between the ages of 18 to 25, must register with Selective Service and provide proof they have registered or are not required to register. You can register by visiting or completing a registration form found at a U.S. Post Office.
