Navigating Financial Aid

reading time icon

In 2019, the Texas Legislature passed legislation to ensure that students and their families take full advantage of federal and state grants by way of completing the FAFSA or TASFA application. This webinar gets you up to date on these application changes and highlights our most-used resources from the Texas OnCourse Financial Aid learning modules. Our Financial Aid modules help you guide your students in receiving the most financial aid possible. 

Our guests for this webinar include Leah Smalley with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Phillip Fabian with the Dallas County Promise, Samantha Gonzalez with Texas OnCourse, and leader fellows Jenny Patrick and Charlotte Ward from Bangs ISD and Lubbock ISD, respectively. 

Log into the Academy to explore the FAFSA and TASFA modules.
