Important FAFSA Tip Regarding Your 2011 Federal Taxes! The FAFSA will ask for your 2011 financial information. New for the 2012-2013 FAFSA, you can retrieve your 2011 Federal Tax information from the IRS website two weeks after your taxes have been filed electronically!
2011 Work-study Earnings Were you a Work-study student at MSOE (or another institution) between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011? If so, you need to report those earnings on your 2012-2013 FAFSA.
When completing the “Student Financial Information” section of your FAFSA there will be a section titled “Additional Financial Information.” Please check the box next to “Taxable earnings from Work-study, Assistantships or Fellowships” and record the amount of your 2011 Work-study earnings in the box provided.
Don’t know your Work-study earnings? MSOE’s Financial Aid office emailed and mailed eligible students their 2011 Work-study earnings in January. Please be sure to include this amount on your 2012-2013 FAFSA form to ensure that you receive the appropriate benefits for all of your hard work. If you already completed your FAFSA without indicating your Work-study earnings, you are encouraged to make a correction to your existing FAFSA.
