Verification Process and Providing Tax/Income Information

If selected for Verification, a student may have to provide forms and documents to the Student Financial Aid Office. In order to provide tax and income information, students (and parents for Dependent aid applicants) may use the FAFSA's IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import data directly from the IRS into the FAFSA or may request a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS.
