Applying for Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) serves as the official application for federal financial aid at Marist College.  To ensure adequate processing time, we recommend that you file your FAFSA as per the deadline below, online at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa

  • The 2023-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available as of October 1, 2022, using Prior-Prior Year Tax Information. Applicants seeking federal financial aid must complete the FAFSA.
  • The FAFSA school code for Marist is 002765.

 

IRS Data Retrieval

The Department of Education has enhanced the FAFSA filing process to allow tax data to be retrieved directly from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The IRS Data Retrieval Tool will allow the filed federal tax return data to be uploaded directly to the FAFSA. If you haven’t already done so, we strongly encourage you to use this tool as it is the fastest, most secure way to provide verified tax information.
