Transfer Students Applying for Aid
General Requirements
Transfer students applying to a full-time division at Tulane University (Newcomb-Tulane College, School of Architecture, School of Science and Engineering, School of Liberal Arts, Freeman School of Business) for the 2011-2012 academic year must complete the 2011-2012 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the 2011-2012 College Scholarship (CSS) Financial Aid Profile to be considered for both federal and institutional need-based aid.

Students can complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students who complete the FAFSA online MUST electronically sign their application OR print out, sign, and mail the "Signature Page" to the Central Processor; the application will not be processed until one form of signature is received. Tulane's school code for the FAFSA is 002029.

Students can obtain the CSS Financial Aid Profile online at http://profileonline.collegeboard.com. Tulane's school code for the CSS Profile is 6832.

Students who have already completed the FAFSA and the CSS Profile for the appropriate academic year can contact the Department of Education and College Scholarship Service and have their information sent to Tulane University.

Application Deadlines
Students who wish to transfer to Tulane for the Fall 2011 semester should complete both the 2011-2012 FAFSA and CSS PROFILE by May 1, 2011 to ensure that the Financial Aid Office receives the information by May 15, 2011. Students must also submit signed copies of their parents' complete 2010 federal tax return, their 2010 federal tax return, and copies of their parents' 2010 W-2 forms to the Financial Aid Office by June 1, 2011. Students and parents who were not required to file 2010 tax returns must complete and submit the appropriate 2011-2012 Non-Filer Form.

Students who wish to transfer into Tulane for the Spring 2012 semester, should complete the both the 2011-2012 FAFSA and CSS PROFILE by October 1, 2011 to ensure that the Financial Aid Office receives the information by October 15, 2011. Students must also submit signed copies of their parents' complete 2010 federal tax return, their 2010 federal tax return, and copies of their parents' 2010 W-2 forms to the Financial Aid Office by November 1, 2011. Students and parents who were not required to file 2010 tax returns must complete and submit the appropriate 2011-2012 Non-Filer Form.

Status of FAFSA Application
Students can verify that their online application was received immediately after it is submitted by returning to the FAFSA main page and selecting "Check my submitted FAFSA". The online status allows students to check the status of their application from initial submission to processed Student Aid Report (SAR). Students with a PIN can also access their processed EFC. Students can also call FAFSA on the Web Customer Service at 800.801.0576 and perform an automatic status check over the phone.

Verification Requirements
Some applicants are selected by the federal processor for verification of information submitted on the FAFSA. Students selected will be notified by mail. In most cases, the prior year's federal tax return (2010 income tax return for the 2011-2012 academic year) is used to verify the information. If the applicant did not keep copies of their tax returns, they can contact the Internal Revenue Service for a copy. The IRS has established a site that provides online copies of tax forms as well as answers to frequently asked questions.

Students and parents who did not earn enough in 2010 to file a federal tax return can complete either the 2011-2012 Student Non-Filer Certification form or the 2011-2012 Parent non-Filer Certification form.

Additional documents may be requested depending on the information to be verified. Some applicants may need to provide verification of Social Security benefits received by their family. Others may need to provide verification of their Social Security number. Still others may need to provide documentation of the type and amount of their Veteran's education benefits.
