Please Note: You must complete the renewal on the Web at www.fafsa.ed.gov. You may review the 2013 - 2014 Required Documents by using the links provided for each class year and program.
You must complete the Title IV Funds Authorization Form if you are applying for financial aid for the first time during the 2013-14 school year. Students who completed the Title IV Funds Authorization form prior, are not expected to submit an additional document. Students must place their Banner ID#/M# on documents submitted for review in the 2013-2014 academic term.
Written documentation must be provided to verify that you filed the FAFSA or renewal FAFSA. The FAFSA must be completed by the financial aid deadline dates as outlined on the Application Deadlines webpage.
Errors will delay the processing of your financial aid information. We recommend that you complete the 2012 tax return prior to completing the FAFSA form.
Federal Income Tax Return: You must forward signed and dated copies of your, your spouse's (if married), and your parents'* completed 2012 Federal Income Tax Return, W-2 forms, 1099 forms, and tax schedules.
*Only applies to applicants seeking institutional funds for the M.D. and M.P.H. Programs.
Non-Filer: If any of the persons listed above are required to submit tax returns, have neither filed nor intend to file a 2012 Federal Income Tax Return, they must complete a "Non-filers Certification Form" (W-2 forms and 1099 forms must be submitted to verify all taxable and untaxable earnings, interest income payments, annuities, etc.).

Federal Tax Return Not Complete: If you, your spouse, and/or your parents have not completed a 2012 U.S. income tax return but will be filing one, it is recommended that you complete your tax return before filling out the appropriate need analysis form. Knowing what will be on your tax return will help you complete the need analysis form accurately.
When your need analysis form is compared with the official 2012 IRS Form 1040, or 1040EZ that is filed by you and your family, the financial information must agree. If there are any errors, this will delay your financial aid process and it will take longer to determine your eligibility and receive institutional and federal student aid.
Important: Federal Direct loan applications cannot be processed until all information on the FAFSA form is correct.
NOTE: Do not complete the Graduate Plus loan application and credit check prior to June 3, 2013. Credit checks for this loan expire 180 days after completion. Submission of any additional credit checks could result in a denial if adverse changes exist on your credit report. Current students may complete loan applications/check checks June 3, 2013 through June 14, 2013.
The Parent Section of the FAFSA Form must be completed (MD and MPH students only) if you wish to be considered for institutional financial aid (i.e., MSM grants, MSM loans, SDS, LDS, Primary Care Loans).
Note: STUDENTS WHO DO NOT SUBMIT THE REQUIRED INFORMATION BY THE ESTABLISHED DEADLINE DATES WILL NOT RECEIVE PRIORITY CONSIDERATION FOR INSTITUTIONAL FUNDS.
