Complete a 2017-2018 FAFSA for fall 2017 / spring 2018 / summer 2018.
Alert: the FAFSA's IRS Data Retrieval Tool is currently unavailable and is projected to be offline until fall 2017. When completing the FAFSA, carefully follow instructions to enter your income/tax information.
If selected for Verification, a student may have to provide forms and tax documents to the Student Financial Aid Office. In order to provide tax/income information, students (and parents for Dependent aid applicants) may submit a signed copy of a Federal 1040/1040A/1040EZ tax return or request a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS if a copy of the return is not available. The FAFSA's IRS Data Retrieval Tool is currently offline.
Students: Check Your UWC Student Email
It is important that your UW Colleges email account is reviewed, once a week at a minimum, so notices from the Student Financial Aid Office and other administrative offices may be addressed in a timely manner.
