Seniors Have New Graduation Requirements

Whether they need financial aid or not, every high school senior in the state of Texas has a few more items to check off their to-do lists before they can get a diploma.

Starting this year, prospective graduates are required under House Bill 3 to complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), a Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA), or a signed opt-out form.

Dallas ISD offers a list of resources and FAQ to answer questions, and will host webinars on March 29 and 31 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. to help as well.
