Data Retrieval Tool to be Available October 1st 2017

Data Retrieval Tool to be Available October 1st 2017 for the 2018/2019 FAFSA Year.

 

On October 1, students and parents should be able to complete their FAFSAs for the 2018-19 academic year with the help of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). Last spring, the Department of Education and the IRS took the tool offline, as a result of concerns over identity theft. Although the DRT will be unavailable for the remainder of the 2017-18 FAFSA application year, the Department of Education has said it will be back up and operating on October 1 for the 2018-19 FAFSA application year.
