Financial Aid Federal Verification

Data Retrieval or Tax Transcript?

The choice is yours.

Confirming your information with the Internal Revenue Service

The Department of Education requires the information you supplied on your application to be confirmed with the actual tax return you and your parents filed with the Internal Revenue Service. You can do this in one of two ways.

  • IRS Data Retrieval 
    Please Note: This Department of Education tool is currently unavailable and is likely to remain unavailable until October of 2017.
  • IRS Tax Transcript 
    You can go directly to the Internal Revenue Service website to request an official tax return transcript to supply to the Financial Aid Office.
