The U.S. Department of Education has announced that the IRS Data Retrieval Tool is unavailable at this time. There is no estimated timeframe on when it will become available.
To fill out a FAFSA, you can manually input your 2015 tax information. If our office is requesting a Tax Return Transcript for you and/or your parents, click here for instructions on how to obtain a copy from the IRS.
The awarding process for the 2017-2018 year will begin in late March. Financial aid for the summer 2017 semester is awarded from the 2017-2018 FAFSA. Summer aid will be included in your initial award package, so please review your award notification thoroughly to ensure your financial aid is applied to the terms for which you plan to enroll.
The chart below will help you determine which FAFSA you need to complete to receive financial aid for the correct semesters:
|Enrollment Period||Required FAFSA||Required Tax Information|
|May 15, 2016 - May 13, 2017||2016-2017 FAFSA||2015 Federal Income Tax Information|
|May 15, 2017 - May 12, 2018||2017-2018 FAFSA||2015 Federal Income Tax Information|
