Types of Financial Aid

There are several different types of financial aid that will help pay for your education. Your financial aid package can include scholarships, grants, loans and work-study. You can accept all or part of what is offered to you. Learn about the different types here.

The income information needed to complete the FAFSA form can be found on a previously filed tax return. (The 2018–19 FAFSA form requires your 2016 tax data.) If you don’t have a copy of your tax return, you may be able to access the tax software used to prepare the return or contact your tax preparer to obtain a copy. You also may visit irs.gov/transcript to view and download a summary (called a “transcript”) of your tax return or to request that a tax transcript be sent to you by mail.
