In order for Tarrant County College to determine your eligibility for financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) provided online by the U.S. Department of Education.
Note: You must reapply annually for financial aid.
Approximately 2-4 weeks after Student Financial Aid Services has received all of your information, you will be notified via your TCC e-mail/Web Advisor that an award letter is available detailing your eligibility for aid.
*Students who are fully admitted to TCC, apply for aid and have all paperwork completed by May 1 will be considered for Federal, State and Institutional aid. All others will be considered for available aid.
Watch Three Steps to Financial Aid to learn more about who's eligible for financial aid and the different types of aid available.

The 7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA (Link will open in a new window) instructional video, courtesy of the University of California, can help walk you through the process.
Undocumented/DACA students who have been admitted to TCC under Senate Bill 1528 Provisions (which allow non-citizens to pay Texas resident tuition) may be eligible for State aid.
Fill out the TASFA Application and view a complete list of instructions on our Application Checklist for Undocumented Students. See your campus's Financial Aid Office for additional information.
Students who want an early estimate of their federal student aid eligibility may complete a FAFSA4caster. The FAFSA4caster offers students an experience similar to the FAFSA on the Web and increases the student's knowledge of the federal aid application process.
