FAFSA for 2021-2022 is now available!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE FAFSA APPLICATION FOR 2021-2022

First Update: Students will be able to complete their FAFSA via the myStudentAid App!

  • Students and parents may download the myStudentAid app in the Apple App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) or on the Web at studentaid.gov.

Students and parents may use the Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DTR) to import their tax information for 2019.

  • The 2021-2022 FAFSA requires students and parents to provide their 2019 tax information and the IRS DTR simplifies this process.
  • Using the IRS DRT saves you time and effort.
  • You do not have to find your tax records.
  • You do not have to worry about making mistakes entering your tax information on your FAFSA®form.
  • You may not need to provide tax transcripts if you’re selected for verification.
  • If you choose to import your tax information into the FAFSA form, you’ll find that on the FAFSA site, instead of your tax information being displayed, you’ll see “Transferred from the IRS” in the appropriate fields.
