Tax Documents. New Requirements …
If we need documentation of your income, we are not able to accept a copy of your tax return.
If you decide not to, or are unable to use the IRS DRT, you must 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). You may use the above link or call 800-908-9946.
* While the video is specific to the 2019-2020 FAFSA, content will still be helpful in using the DRT for 2020-2021.
