The 80th Texas legislature created the Top 10% 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, qualified students who submit the FAFSA or TASFA by a specific deadline, have financial need, and enroll fulltime in a Texas public college or university in the fall semester, MAY BE eligible to receive an award. Funding for initial awards is not available for the 2018-2019 academic year calendar. FAFSA or TASFA must be processed and cannot be in a REJECT status; a Student Aid Report (SAR) for the student must be on file at the college or university. Students will be notified on their financial aid award notification received from the college to which they apply. For more information, visit www.collegeforalltexans.com.
In 2015, the Texas Legislature passed House Bill 855, which requires state agencies to publish a list of the three most commonly used Web browsers on their websites. The Texas Comptroller’s most commonly used Web browsers are Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Apple Safari.
