Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA)
for SB1528 ‘undocumented students’


  • If you qualify as an ‘undocumented student’ (or, SB1528), you must complete the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA)  and submit the form to the MSU Financial Aid Office if you wish to apply for state/institutional financial aid; ‘undocumented students’ are NOT eligible to receive federal aid, such as the Pell Grant and Direct Loans.
  • After you have completed and submitted the TASFA application, the MSU Financial Aid Office may request additional information from you/spouse and/or parent;  examples of requested documentation may include a Tax Return  OR Transcript, verification worksheet, etc… your requested documentation can be viewed at MSU's Portal.

  • If you/spouse/parent did not file a tax return, please complete the Verification for Non-Tax Filers form to confirm your non-filing tax status.

  • Additionally, you will be required to apply for admission to MSU.  After your admission application has been reviewed, the MSU Admissions Office will require  you to complete an affidavit to confirm that you are a SB1528 ‘undocumented student’; you must submit a copy of this affidavit to the MSU Financial Aid Office as well.


Once TASFA and all requested documents have been received and reviewed by the MSU Financial Aid Office, you will be notified of the state/institutional award(s) you are eligible to receive which you will be able to view at MSU's Portal.
