The Financial Aid Office no longer accepts documents via FAX.

IRS Data Retrieval Tool Outage:

The Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), which allows students and parents applying for financial aid to import tax information directly into their FAFSA will be offline until the start of the next FAFSA season, which starts in October.

If you were required to update your FAFSA by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, you may satisfy this requirement by submitting a copy of 2015 Federal Tax Return Transcript. The 2015 Federal Tax Return Transcript may be obtained by going online to and following the “Get a Transcript” link in the Tools section. You may either select “Get a Transcript by MAIL” or “Get Transcript ONLINE.” Requirements for using either service are indicated below each link.

In-Person Exit Counseling Sessions:

To assist you with understanding your rights and responsibilities during your repayment period, we are offering in-person exit counseling sessions where you will:

  • Learn about the variety of repayment options to help you manage your loan debt
  • Get vital information on what to do if you can't repay your loans
  • Ask questions about what to expect when repaying your loans
  • Learn how to protect your credit and future (getting a job, owning a home, taking out a car loan) - all of which depends upon you following all of your options for repayment.

In addition, by attending an in-person  session, you will be entered into a drawing for a CSUDH Diploma Frame!
