Complete the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1, 2016. Before completing the application, read the instructions carefully and complete the form according to the instructions.
You must use your and your parents’ 2015 tax information to complete parts of the application. You are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval Process to import your 2015 tax data into the FAFSA. However, if the tax returns have not been completed at the time you complete the application, you may use estimated figures.
You will be required to return to www.FAFSA.ed.gov and use the IRS Data Retrieval process once your tax returns are completed. Be certain to list Belmont Abbey College under the “College Release and Certification” section. If you do not list BAC in this section, the Financial Aid Office will not have access to your data so that you may be considered for financial aid.
