- Important information for students seeking Financial Aid -


  1. Students applying for federal aid for Fall 2020 will need to complete the 2020-21 FAFSA.  Allen’s priority deadline is May 1st.  If you are transferring to a different institution, we encourage you to check their deadlines.  You will use 2018 tax information for the 20-21 FAFSA.  The FAFSA is free of charge and should be completed at www.studentaid.gov.

  2. We highly recommend that you request a tax return transcript online at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript.  If you are selected for verification you will need to submit the tax return transcript to our office. 


  3. If either you or your parents filed an amended tax return for 2018, you will need to request both a completed and signed 1040X and a tax return transcript.
