Affordable Choice, Unbeatable Value - Financial Aid

Requesting the Correct Documents

In accordance with Department of Education Regulations our office is no longer able to accept copies of your Federal Income Tax Returns (i.e. 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ) for Financial Aid Verifications. Instead, all students and parents for whom tax information is requested will be required to submit an IRS Tax Return Transcript. To obtain an IRS tax return transcript, go to the IRS Get Transcript site and click on the Get Transcript by Mail link, or call 1-800-908-9946.

It is important that you request the IRS Tax Return Transcript and not the IRS Tax Account Transcript. You will need your Social Security Number, date of birth, and the address on file with the IRS (this will usually be the address used when the tax return was filed). Tax return transcripts are available 2-3 weeks after electronically filing taxes and 6-8 weeks after paper filing. Your tax transcript will be mailed within 10 business days of your request.
