Financial Aid FAQs: Important answers to your questions to the changes in Financial Aid filing for 2017-2018



If your FAFSA has been chosen for Verification you will be required to provide official IRS tax data to our office. Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to correct your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) income data to official IRS tax information (if the tax information manually entered is correct you are still required to use the DRT in order to have the data be 'official'). We should receive a record of your corrected FAFSA. If the FAFSA processing center indicates that you are unable to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool you are required to provide an official IRS Tax Return Transcript. Tax return transcripts can be requested online at and a copy will be mailed directly to you within 5-10 days. In addition, our office requires that you print and send the appropriate Verification Worksheet Form to our office. If you are a tax non-filer, please check box on page 2 of your Verification Worksheet, send us copies of your W-2s and obtain an IRS Non-filing letter by completing IRS form 4506-T and checking box #7.
