Quick Links


FAFSA Forecaster

  • Go to the FAFSA website where there is a financial aid forecaster. This site uses last year's federal income tax information to give you an estimate on your expected family contribution (EFC). 


Fill out the FAFSA!

  • First, apply for you PIN. You can do this any time, and it only take a few minutes. One word of caution. Put this information in a safe place and DON'T LOSE IT!

  • If you have already created a PIN for an older brother or sister of your senior, you must use the same PIN. If you don't remember it or can't find it, you will have to go through the hassle of getting a new one. Start now.


  • Fill out the FAFSA as soon after Janurary 1st as possible. You might want to alert your tax preparer that you have a high school senior and that you will need to have your tax returns finished as soon as you can.

College For All Texans

  • By visiting this website, you’re just a few clicks from everything you need to select the Texas university, college, junior college or technical school that’s best for you. And you’ll find tools here that will help you plan everything in detail. You can even fill out an application for the college you choose and apply for financial aid. So relax, take a deep breath, and get started. Good luck!
