IRS DATA Retrieval Tool is Unavailable
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the U.S. Department of Education recently announced the unavailability of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). The DRT is expected to be unavailable on FAFSA.gov and StudentLoans.gov for several months. This outage, however, should not impact your ability to apply for federal student aid. Applicants can still manually provide any required financial information from copies of their tax returns.
***Attention Current and Incoming Students***
The 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available. If you'll be attending school between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018, and have not submitted a 2017-18 FAFSA, Please APPLY ASAP.
**If you will be attending school after July 1, 2017, please submit the 2017-18 FAFSA. Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income and tax information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income and tax information, rather than their 2016 income and tax information.
Current Interest Rates
The interest rates on student loans disbursed during the academic year beginning July 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2018 will be as follows:
Direct Subsidized Loans - 4.45%
Direct Unsubsidized Loans - 4.45%
Direct PLUS Loans - 7.00%
