News and Announcements

IRS Data Retrieval Tool Unavailable

The U.S. Department of Education has recently announced that the IRS Data Retrieval Tool—the online tool that transfers your tax data directly into your FAFSA—is currently unavailable, and will continue to be down for several weeks. This means that when completing your 2017-18 FAFSA, you'll need to manually enter your financial information. To make the process easier, we recommend that you gather all of the documents you might need before starting the application.
