Review the FAFSA Checklist

The FAFSA is the primary application to apply and be considered for financial aid.

Use the FAFSA Data Retrieval Tool!

If you filed taxes for 2021, we ask you to use the Data Retrieval Tool if you are eligible. You’ll be connected to the IRS website, where you can have your 2021 income tax information transferred directly to your FAFSA. Using Data Retrieval reduces the chances of being selected for verification.
