The Financial Aid Office offers information on how to apply for financial aid, interviews for student loan applications, the downloading of financial aid forms, scholarship information and a lot more. For other matters, students can simply give them a call.

The deadline for the submission of fully filled out, signed or e-signed application forms regarding financial aid is on the 1st of January, 2015. Free application forms are available from free Application for Federal Student Aid at www.fafsa.gov. The deadline for the submission of FAFSA application forms is on the 2nd of March, 2015. The IRS Data Retrieval is allowed for fewer mistakes made on the application forms. For this to happen, parents and students must file taxes before signing the FAFSA application forms. Starting the 1st of February, the IRS Data Retrieval will be offered for use.

All documents must be in not later than the 14th of May, 2015. Only those students who abide by the two deadlines (Mar 2 and 14) will be considered. Those who fail to do so must shell out the payments for their registration not later than the deadline of payments.

If for some reason a student fails to use the IRS Data Retrieval program, the applicant must submit a copy of his or her parents IRS Tax Return Records. There are four ways of obtaining the Federal Tax Return Records.

Log on to www.irs.gov and go to ‘Get Transcript of your Tax Records.’ Then go to “Get Transcript Online’ or to “get transcript by Mail.”
