Important Information about Submitting your 2015-2016 FAFSA
Recommended process to submit your 2015-2016 FAFSA:
- Students and their parents (or spouse) first electronically submit 2014 Federal Tax Returns to the IRS on or after Jan. 31
- Three (3) weeks later, complete and submit your FAFSA to take advantage of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool
Using IRS Data Retrieval allows taxpayers to conveniently transfer key financial items from their Federal Tax Return to a FAFSA, saving time and reducing the chance of errors, though it’s not available until approximately three (3) weeks after electronic submission of your Federal Tax Return.
If both a student and parents (or spouse) do not need to file a 2014 Federal Tax Return, you can submit your 2015-2016 FAFSA once you have all your 2014 financial documents.
April 15 is Penn College’s Priority FAFSA Submission Deadline.
