2019-20 Graduate Student Financial Aid Information

The Financial Aid Application Process

File the 2019-20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible on or after October 1, 2018. When completing the 2019-2020 FAFSA you will be using income data from calendar year 2017. You should use the FAFSA IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to populate the income data from the IRS. In order to protect your privacy, if you use the IRS DRT when completing the 2019-2020 FAFSA form on, the federal government will not display your tax return information on the DRT web page, on your FAFSA form or on your Student Aid Report (SAR). Instead, you’ll see “Transferred from the IRS” in the appropriate fields on If eligible, it is strongly recommended to utilize the IRS DRT. The IRS DRT remains the fastest, most accurate way to input your tax return information into the FAFSA form. Adelphi’s Federal school code is 002666.
Promptly complete and submit all requested documentation.
