If you are currently receiving financial aid or scholarships from Fordham, you must apply for renewal of your aid each year. Please take the following steps by the specified date:

By April 6

Submit the 2017-18 FAFSA – School Code 002722

  • When available, use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to transfer 2015 federal tax information into your 2017-2018 FAFSA. If you are not eligible to use the DRT or if it is not available, complete your FAFSA by manually inputting the income information found on your 2015 tax return. If you do not have a copy of your tax return, you may visit the IRS Website to view and download a summary of your tax return. You can also call 1-800-908-9946, and a transcript will be delivered to your address of record within five to ten days.
  • Sign your FAFSA using your FSA ID
  • Review your Student Aid Report (SAR) for accuracy, make corrections if necessary, make sure Fordham University is listed and review the messages for any items you may need to take action on
