SUBMIT A FAFSA EARLIER: Students are able to submit a 2017-2018 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016, rather than having to wait until January 1, 2017. JSCC will be hosting several FAFSA Workshops.
USE PRIOR-PRIOR YEAR TAX INFORMATION: Beginning with the 2017-2018 FAFSA, students and parents will report income information
from the prior, prior year. So, when you complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA, you will use
2015 income tax information.
This 2015 tax information should be submitted by using the IRS “Data Retrieval Tool” (DRT) when you fill out the 2017-2018 FAFSA application.
The DRT allows you to transfer your tax return information directly into the FAFSA application.
APPEALS - The next scheduled meeting to review Financial Aid appeals has not been scheduled. Please check back.
