Important reminders about this year’s application process

  • IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) for FAFSA: This tool allows financial aid applicants and their families to transfer family income and tax data automatically from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to the FAFSA. The online FAFSA will help you through this process, which requires your PIN and confirmation that you want to transfer your tax data. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) is now available for 2014-15 academic year.We strongly recommend using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to complete your FAFSA.
    • Once you file your FAFSA, you will receive email reminders to update your FAFSA data using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). If you choose not to use the tool and/or do not qualify to use the tool, you may be required to submit a Tax Return Transcript. You must sign the transcript and then submit to our office.
  • You may apply for student loans after June 15, 2014. Details on how to apply will be emailed to you beginning on or after June 15, 2014.

You now must complete your FAFSA by March 2, 2014 whether you are a renewal recipient or a first time applicant. For detailed information or to check on the status of your Cal Grant, go here.
  • If you are a continuing Scripps student applying for financial aid for the very first time, you will need to submit the College Scholarship Service (CSS) PROFILE if you are interested in receiving any institutional aid. You need to complete the FAFSA if you are interested in federal aid only. Please contact us for more information.
