San Angelo ISD and Region 15 to host informational weeks on College Financial Aid Applications for FAFSA and TASFA

News

SAN ANGELO, Texas – According to a release from San Angelo ISD, access to the application for federal college student aid for the 2022-2023 school year is now open at Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Through the FAFSA link, SAISD students planning to attend college next year and their families can apply for their share of $150 billion in aid. This year, it is anticipated that it will be more important than ever to complete FAFSA applications as soon as possible to improve the likelihood of receiving aid.

To learn more about FAFSA and other financial aid options, SAISD and the Education Service Center Region 15 are hosting FAFSA and TASFA informational weeks here in San Angelo. The purpose of these free sessions is to guide parents and students through the application process for both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA).

These applications, which are vital for students planning to attend college, help families find financial aid (including grants, loans and work-study) that matches their needs.

Families are encouraged to complete and submit the FAFSA/TASFA even if they are unsure at this time of their student’s educational plans for next year as funds from FAFSA/TASFA are on a first come, first served basis.

The following October and November sessions are being offered. Students and families can attend any of the below sessions regardless of location or the campus the student attends.
