Summer Hours

Summer Financial Aid Processing Hours  begin on May 15th.  

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), which allows students and parents to transfer tax data directly to the FAFSA from the IRS is not currently available. " The IRS decided to temporarily suspend the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) as a precautionary step following concerns that information from the tool could potentially be misused by identity thieves." It is unclear when this service will be accessible again. Please pay careful attention when inputting tax data as errors may greatly affect your financial aid.

The 2017-2018 FAFSA is now available to complete at Parents and students will use tax information from 2015 not 2016 (taxes filed between 1/1/16 and 4/15/16). We do have a priority filing deadline of March 15. Any current students who file after this date are not guaranteed to retain their work-study funding.
