Students and parent(s) are not required to submit W-2 Forms, copies of tax returns or the Gettysburg College Verification Worksheet (unless requested to do so by the Office of Financial Aid as part of the verification process).
If you took courses while on Leave of Absence or Withdrawal or plan to take courses during the summer, you should review the Satisfactory Academic Progress for Federal Student Aid policy. The financial aid satisfactory academic progress policy includes the pace at which a student must progress to ensure completion of the program and the cumulative grade point average.
This feature in the FAFSA permits you to access submitted Federal Tax Return information, when possible, to populate many questions on the FAFSA. Your Federal Tax Return should be submitted to the IRS at least two weeks in advance (if filing electronically) or six weeks in advance (if filing by mail) in order to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.
The Office of Financial Aid will follow up with students who, after submitting the FAFSA, have been selected for verification by the Department of Education to collect additional information.
