How to Prep for FAFSA
Requesting a Tax Transcript
A tax transcript comes from the IRS and shows a record of previously filed taxes. You (or your guardian) may need to request a tax transcript to make the financial aid process easier to navigate. Some institutions may require a transcript from you, or ask that you complete forms that require information found on your tax transcript. Request a transcript before beginning the financial aid process to avoid any delay in completing aid applications.
Appealing Your Financial Aid Award
You can submit an “appeal” to your financial aid award if you have special or unexpected circumstances. An appeal letter would be sent to a school in response to your financial aid award after they admit you. Circumstances that justify an appeal may relate to any reason that you are still unable to afford the cost of attendance after loans, grants, and scholarships have been applied.
