To Complete Your FAFSA

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) permits aid applicants to retrieve and transfer their income tax data directly into their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. Applicants are strongly encouraged to use this process to ensure the accuracy of their income data. 

IMPORTANT:

 

Understanding the Federal Verification Process

Verification is a process used to check the accuracy of certain information entered on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and to resolve any errors.  Students are selected by the Department of Education or by the school. Selected students will need to provide additional documentation to the Financial Aid Office before we can finalize a financial aid award. 

If you are selected for verification, you will need to complete and submit the required verification worksheet to the aid office and any other requested documentation as shown in your "To Do List" in SIS Self-Service.  You must use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA to provide income information from your federal tax return.  If you are not able to use the Data Retrieval Tool or, you make changes to your transferred data, you must submit an official 2017 IRS transcript of your federal income tax return. You can obtain the transcript online at www.IRS.gov/individuals/Get-Transcript or by calling the IRS at 1-800-908-9946.

Once all documents have been received, our office will review the data and compare it to the information on your FAFSA. Our office will make corrections (if necessary) and transmit them to the federal processor.  If corrections are required, you will receive an updated Student Aid Report (SAR).  You can track the completion of verification documents on your "To Do List" in SIS Self-Service at https://www.sis.jhu.edu.  

Verification may take several weeks to complete, so we ask that you supply the requested materials as soon as possible.  All required verification documents must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office before an aid award can be finalized. The deadline to submit required documentation is the financial aid deadline posted under Filing Dates for the final term in which you are eligible to apply for assistance (enrolled 6 or more credits).
