PLEASE DO NOT SEND TAXES OR FORMS IF WE HAVE NOT REQUESTED THEM!
If you send unsolicited documents, we must verify the information regardless of your verification status. In other words, if you were not required initially to go through the verification process, sending an unprompted document will obligate our office to verify the student's FAFSA data.
Information on using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) and instruction on obtaining an IRS Tax Return Transcript or an IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter can be found on our How to Apply for Aid section of our website.
Our preferred method of document submission is through our secure one-way Box Portal online.
If you experience difficulties completing a form, please contact our office for assistance.
