Get Involved

Complete and submit the 2015-2016 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for 2015-16 financial aid.  We strongly recommend completing the FAFSA early (available beginning January 1, 2015).

  • File by February 15 at to meet the March 1 Priority Deadline.
  • Use income estimates if you haven’t filed your 2014 federal tax return.
  • Electronically sign the FAFSA using PIN/FSA ID.

File your 2014 federal tax return early and electronically to simplify and expedite the financial aid process.

  • Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) to efficiently update your FAFSA with filed 2014 tax information.
  • The IRS DRT is available as of February 1, 2015. Individual federal tax return data is available for transfer two weeks after electronic filing and six to eight weeks after filing a paper return.

What is Verification? 

  • Verification is the federal process of verifying or confirming the information provided on the FAFSA is accurate. Roughly 30% of all FAFSAs filed are selected for Verification.
  • Marquette will notify you if your FAFSA has been selected for verification and of the documentation to submit to us.
