Questions and Answers About the Financial Aid Process
|New Students||Returning Students|
What should I do if my parents or I file our federal tax returns with the IRS after the April 1 deadline?
Provide an explanation with your Institutional Verification Form (IVF). When filing or correcting the FAFSA, be sure to use the IRS Data Retrieval Process. You will not receive notification of your financial aid award until we receive either an IRS tax transcriipt(s) or the FAFSA/IRS Data Retrieval Process is used. In addition, copies of W-2 forms and Schedules C & SE (if self-employed) must be submitted with the Verification Form. Priority will be given to those students who have submitted all of the required documents by April 1. Students who submit documents after April 1 may have their grant assistance reduced.
