How to Apply for Financial Aid

We’ll help guide you through the financial aid application process.

The Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), which allows students and parents applying for financial aid to import tax information directly into their FAFSA, will be unavailable until October 2017. The U.S. Department of Education announced regulatory relief for verification procedures due to the IRS Data Retrieval Tool’s prolonged outage. Paper copies of 2015 IRS tax returns are now acceptable documentation for verifying tax and income information provided on the FAFSA (ISIR) for 2017-18 FAFSA information.

For 2018-19 FAFSA filers, the IRS Data Retrieval Tool has returned with enhancements to ensure the security of your private information. There will be limited information displayed when you view the screens, but if you are confident that the tax return you submitted is correct, this is the best way to complete the FAFSA as quickly as possible and with the fewest errors. Also remember that using the DRT will save time and effort if the student’s record is selected for verification.

To file the FAFSA online, go to  Adelphi’s federal school code is 002666.
