FINANCIAL AID AND COLLEGE COACHING
The financial aid application for the 2020-2021 school year opens on October 1, 2019. The financial aid priority deadline for many Texas schools is January 15, 2020.
Our Prosper Centers: College Hub experts are available to provide assistance with financial aid applications, college coaching, and general college support services. Our bilingual, tax-certified team can help you complete financial aid forms – including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) – as well as your verification paperwork. We can also help you review your financial aid package and make sure you have a plan to pay for school.
Beyond financial aid, come see us to explore your educational options, navigate the college admissions process, search and apply for scholarships, and map out a path to graduation. We understand that the path to a degree looks different for each student, and we are here to help you create a plan for accomplishing your goals.
Our services are free and available to anyone who makes less than $55,000/year.
Tuesday – Thursday: 10am-7pm
Friday – Saturday: 9am-1pm
We will be closed November 28-30 for Thanksgiving
