Disbursements: We begin paying tuition/fee charges the evening of Wednesday, March 29th. Checks for remaining funds will be mailed. Mailing of checks typically begins one day prior to the start of the quarter, so most students will receive their check the first week of the quarter. Make sure you have a secure mailbox and that your address in admissions is accurate.
You must have information from your tax return in order to file a Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®).
The IRS tax Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) used to access your tax information for the FAFSA is currently unavailable from the IRS.
This does not limit an individual’s ability to apply for aid. Applicants can manually provide their tax return information. The online FAFSA application remains operational, and applicants can continue filing the FAFSA as they normally would by providing the tax information manually.
Getting Your 2015 Tax Return Information For the 2016–17 and 2017–18 FAFSA
Applicants filing a 2016–17 or 2017–18 FAFSA must use data from their 2015 tax returns.
You should always retain a copy of your tax return, either electronically or on paper, and keep it in a secure place.
If you did not keep a copy of your tax return, here are some options:

may be able to access your account to download/print a copy.
- Contact the tax preparer/provider who filed your 2015 return if you used a tax professional.
- Download your tax transcript (a summary) at Get Transcript Online. Review the rigorous identity authentication requirements for Secure Access before attempting to register.
- Use Get Transcript by Mail and a transcript will be mailed to the address on your return within five to 10 days.
- Call our automated line at 800-908-9946 to order a transcript by mail.
If you filed an amended tax return, Form 1040X, you should use the adjusted gross income and earned income listed on your revised tax return.
