Financial Aid “Special Circumstance” Forms

If you feel the FAFSA (federal application) does not provide an accurate picture of your family’s financial situation, please complete the form(s) below to provide your personal, special circumstances.


Tax Documents.  New Requirements …
Federal regulations have changed related to verifying your and/or your parent’s income.  In all cases, we are no longer permitted to use a copy of your federal tax return as proof of your income.

Instead, families are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) as part of the FAFSA.  Watch the video to see how it works.

If you decide not to, or are unable to, use the IRS DRT above, families must then provide an official IRS Tax Return Transcript.  This document comes directly from the IRS, and is sent to you or to us (the Office of Financial Aid).
