FAFSA Verification Information

This year, a student who’s FAFSA is selected for Verification, AND who did not file a 2015 tax form (i.e., MOST of them) will likely have to prove that they didn’t. This applies to parents who didn’t file 2015 taxes as well. Here is the process for doing that:

1) Go into IRS.gov (request Tax Transcript) and find tax form 4506-T, and print it out.

2) Complete the appropriate sections of the paper version of that form (name, SS#, and address) – you can’t do this online!

3) Put 1040 in line 6, and then check box for line 7 (‘Verification of Non-filing’)

4) Put Tax year (12/31/2015) in line 9

5) Check box, sign and date

6) Then mail to address listed, OR, preferably, FAX to 512-460-2272

Manual to host FAFSA and Financial Aid Workshop


The annual FAFSA and Financial Aid Workshop for seniors and parents is Monday, August 29, 2016 in the Manual Auditorium. The program begins at 6:00 PM and the special guest speaker is Mr. Gene Weiss from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority. Mr. Weiss will walk you through the FAFSA submission process and answer questions you may have about reporting your financial information. It is very important for at least one parent to attend with their senior. If you want any sort of financial aid during college you will need to complete the FAFSA form. The window for submitting the FAFSA opens October 1, 2016. Waiting to file means there is less money to allocate, so you will want to file as early as possible.
