The Financial Aid Office provides counseling and assistance to students who do not have the necessary financial resources to accomplish their educational objectives.
Note: Currently the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) is down and is anticipated to be working again October 1, 2017. If the Financial Aid Office is requesting your tax information you will need to provide a 2015 Tax Return Transcript from the IRS. We are no longer requesting a verification of non-filing letter from the IRS if you did not file taxes in 2015.
If you have difficulties obtaining your Return Transcript, we will accept a signed copy of your 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ.
