If you are in need of financial assistance, make sure your FAFSA lists Texas A&M University. Texas A&M University's federal school code is 003632.
The FAFSA must be completed on or after October 1 for you to receive financial aid for the upcoming academic year. For priority consideration, submit your FAFSA by March 15. The online FAFSA is located at fafsa.gov
. In most cases, the online FAFSA can be received by Texas A&M within one week of submission. The paper version of the FAFSA can be obtained from your high school counselor or at Paper FAFSA for 2018-2019
. The paper FAFSA can take 3-5 weeks to be sent to Texas A&M. We recommend completing the online FAFSA for quicker results. More information on how to fill out the FAFSA can be found at 7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA
FAFSA Application Process
- The FAFSA is available October 1 for the following school year.
- You must submit a completed FAFSA in order to be considered for federal/state grants and student loans.

The FSA ID (a user name and password) must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites.

The security of your FSA ID is important. Your FSA ID can be used to:
- Electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents,
