Hello Parents of 2024 Graduates!


As we enter this semester, I want to remind you all of the financial aid graduation requirement. ALL graduating students in the state of Texas must complete either the FAFSA or the TASFA. We will be having various financial aid nights this semester where we will be helping families through their applications. Those will be starting January 18 see the attachment for more dates. 2022 tax information will be needed.


The FAFSA should be filled out if the student has a social security number

  • The FAFSA can be found online at: https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa
  • Both the student and at least one parent/guardian will need to create an account
  • Parents/guardians do not have to
  • To update your student's FOCUS account for graduation, we need to see one of the proof options shown on the attachment. You can forward the confirmation email or send one of the two screenshots to hcannon@fwisd.org


The TASFA is for students who DO NOT have a social security number


Please remember, this graduation requirement is a state law, Paschal nor any of its employees will be able to see any of your private information unless you directly share that with us. If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
