New Graduation Requirement

Beginning in 2021-2022, each 12th grade student must do one of the following in order to graduate:

• complete and submit a free application for federal student aid (FAFSA)

• complete and submit a Texas application for state financial aid (TASFA)

• submit a signed opt-out form

 

TEA will make a variety of resources available to support school districts with implementing the new requirement.

An important part of students completing FASFA are parents completing their tax returns. Parents, please be sure to have your 2020 Tax Return available by October 1 of your student’s senior year.
