Verification requires that Earlham College collect certain information to ensure the accuracy of the data reported on the FAFSA.
As part of this process the parent or parents as well as the student who completed the 2019-20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must do one of the following:
If you filed a 2017 Federal Income Tax Return:
- Update the student’s FAFSA online by using the IRS Data Retrieval System
www.fafsa.ed.gov - Use of the IRS Data Retrieval System for both the parent and the student tax data is highly recommended due to its speed and accuracy.
- Submit the 2017 Federal Tax Transcript to the Earlham College Financial Aid Office
https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript or 1-800-908-9946 - You will be requested to provide your Social Security Number and other information such as the exact street address on your return, birthdate, etc.
If you did not file a 2017 Federal Income Tax Return:
You will need to complete the top portion (1-4) sign the bottom and submit to the IRS. If you didn’t complete a tax return, but you have earnings for the year, you will also need to submit your W-2’s to Earlham College Financial Aid Office.
Send the Student Non-Filer Statement to the Financial Aid Office.
