You will be notified by the Financial Aid Office IF you are selected for verification. You will be directed as to what specific information must be returned to our office.  If selected for verification, you do not need to submit all of the forms listed below.

Tax Transcript Information

In lieu of requesting a tax return transcript from the IRS, you/your parent have the option to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in FAFSA on the web, which will automatically transfer you/your parent’s information from the IRS to your FAFSA once you have filed a tax return. This tool will be available two weeks after you file your taxes electronically or eight weeks after you submit your paper tax return.

  • Log into the FAFSA website with student SS# and PIN#
  • Choose “Make FAFSA Corrections”
  • Hit “next” on the bottom of the screens until you get to the page titled “Parent Financial Information”
  • Answer the question about tax filing status; reminder: you will need the parent PIN#
    • If you are able to choose “Already Filed” AND “none of the above” follow screen prompts to link data to IRS
    • If you unable to use the IRS data retrieval tool, you MUST request a tax transcript; please see the reverse side for those instructions.
  • Enter PIN # and click “Link to IRS”
  • Follow the same steps for the student section; you will need the student’s PIN #
  • When complete, follow screen prompts until you get to the “sign and submit” page; you will need both the student and parent PIN # again
  • You will know your FAFSA was submitted when you get the following screen information: “Congratulations, STUDENT NAME, your FAFSA was successfully submitted…”
  • The Financial Aid office will receive your corrected FAFSA in three to seven business days, at which time they will review your financial aid file and complete the verification process

If you are unable to link your/your parent's information from the IRS to your FAFSA, then you'll need to request a tax return transcript for you and/or your parent online.  You have the option to create an account with the IRS and receive your transcript electronically as a pdf.  You can also request to have it mailed to you.

You can also order a tax return transcript by phone at 1-800-908-9946. 

 Make sure to request the “IRS tax RETURN transcript” and NOT the “IRS tax account transcript.”  You will need the Social Security Number, date of birth, and the address on file with the IRS (normally this will be the address used when the 2013 IRS tax return was filed) for the tax filer. 

 It takes up to two weeks for the IRS income information to be available for electronic tax return filers, and up to eight weeks for paper IRS tax return filers.  The tax transcript will be sent to you, at which time you need to forward a copy of it to the Financial Aid Office.
