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 for several months. The IRS and the Department of Education said in a joint statement released on March 9 that they are working to resolve the situation.

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is expected to 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).

Education is a major investment of your time, money and effort, and financing your education requires careful advance planning. Our Office of Student Financial Services is here to guide you through the financial aid application process, assist you in identifying scholarships, grants and loans, and offer ongoing advice for students and parents.

While many of the financial aid application steps are similar, we’ve put together some helpful step-by-step guides depending on where you are in the college process.
