And, oh yeah, the Online Data Retrieval Tool is not working…so what’s that mean…you ask. Well, Fine-Feathered Friends…it means you will have to enter all of the numbers about annual income, taxes paid, assets…yada, yada…a mano, by hand. So you can:

  1. Have your (your parents’) 2015 tax return en la mano when sitting down to do your FAFSAwhaaaaat???
  2. When you log in to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSAwhaaaat...FIRST, print a copy of your SAR (Student Aid Report) from your 2016-2017 FAFSAwhaaaaat…’cause…(drumroll)...you used the same tax return last year (see above)…if you did a FAFSAwhaaat last year…(muchas gracias to Kelly D. for this pro tip!)

I know, I kRelated imagenow…financial aid is a necessary evil. And I’m not just saying that…as a PSLF enrollee..imagine my dismay when the following popped up in my news feed:

UGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
