Verifying your FAFSA information

You may be required to provide documentation to verify the accuracy of information reported on the FAFSA. If you are selected for verification, please submit the requested documents as soon as possible. Those documents can be found on our Commonly Used Forms page. You only need to complete the forms requested.

IRS Tax Return Transcript Request

The U.S. Department of Education requires the IRS tax return transcript be submitted to the financial aid office. You can download and print your tax return transcript. You can also request transcripts of your W-2s, if necessary. 

You also have the option of requesting your tax return transcript be mailed to you. It takes about 10 days to receive it.

Get your IRS tax return transcript

You may also request your transcript by phone by calling  the IRS at 800-908-9946.

We cannot accept copies of federal tax returns. The U.S. Department of Education states that federal tax returns are NOT acceptable for verification purposes.

You can bypass obtaining federal tax return transcripts by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when filing your FAFSA. You can also it to process a correction to your FAFSA, if necessary.
