Important Information for Currently Enrolled Students
The Renewal FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) filing deadline for the 2017-2018 academic year is April 14, 2017. Students will now use "prior prior" tax year data when completing FAFSA. Students completing the 2017-2018 FAFSA should use 2015 tax information. This change will also allow the majority of students and parents to use the IRS Date Retrieval tool (DRT) to complete FAFSA, as most 2015 tax returns have been filed. We highly recommend that aid applicants completing the FAFSA use the DRT option as this is the best way to assure accurate tax information on FAFSA.
