Avoid financial aid fraud! Don't pay to fill out the FAFSA - it is a free application.
Due to the suspension of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), the delays in obtaining tax transcripts, and the verification of non-tax filing status letters, the Department of Education has relaxed some of the verification procedures for schools.
- If you or your parents were asked to complete the "Student Tax Filing Verification" or "Parent Tax Filing Verification", you will now be able to submit a signed copy of the 2015 Tax Return, along with the Verification form.
- If you or your parents were asked to obtain "Verification of Non Tax Filing Status", you will no longer need to submit the Form 4506-T to the IRS. You are now only required to complete the Non-Tax Filing Verification Form and submit your W-2's, if required.
Document Completion Date - Deadline has been extended!
SJSU has also extended our file completion deadline to May 26, 2017. Please be aware of this new deadline to complete financial aid files to be considered for maximum funding.
