FSA IDYou need an FSA ID to complete the FAFSA. Tutorial: How to create an FSA ID.

IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT): Use the DRT to import your tax information into the FAFSA during the application process. It can reduce the likelihood of your FAFSA being selected for federal verification because it improves the accuracy of information reported.

Submitting Other Required Documents:  If we request you submit additional documentation to our office, you can do so via FAX, U.S. Mail, or by uploading it to one of our secured portals.
