Both schools have many wonderful programs to offer our TRiO students.  If you are interested in learning more about these schools, ask your TRiO specialist for more information.

Applied for FAFSA? Don’t Forget to Verify

After you’ve finished applying for Federal Student Aid, don’t forget to verify your information. To help you with this, the IRS has created a tool to verify your income and wage information. By using this tool, you can complete the FAFSA more easily and accurately, increase accuracy in awarding financial aid funds, and, if selected for verification, you can use the tool to update your income information.

View the following slideshow to get more information about the tool and receive instruction on how to use the tool: FAFSA-IRS Data Retrieval Tool
