The 80th Texas Legislature created the Top 10 Percent Scholarship to encourage students who graduate in the top 10% of their high school class to attend a Texas public institution of higher education. Typically, if funding is available, qualifying students who submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) by a specific deadline, have financial need, and enroll full-time in a Texas public college or university in the fall semester may be eligible to receive an award. Students who submit their FAFSA after this deadline will not be awarded due to limited funding.
-Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in time to generate the CPS results in a non-rejected status, or submit the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) to the financial aid office
-Complete 30 semester credit hours (SCH) in the previous year
-Maintain cumulative 3.25 GPA
-Complete at least 75% of hours attempted
