Filing the 2020-21 FAFSA

What Can Marquette Students Expect?

  • 2020-2021 FAFSA availability: Students will be able to file a 2020–21 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2019.

  • Use 2018 Income Information: For the 2020–21 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their tax year 2018 income information.
  • The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) will be available on October 1, 2019 for the 2020-2021 FAFSA. There will be increased security from the IRS when using this tool. When you link to the IRS website from the FAFSA website, you will not be able to see your tax data on the IRS DRT web page. If you or your parent agree to transfer your data back into the FAFSA form, you will not see the data on the FAFSA website either. You will see the words 'Transferred from the IRS' in the data fields throughout the online FAFSA.
