Verification Requirements

Check the Financial Aid Requirements via myMarist to complete all verification and other pending requirements.

Marist College verifies information submitted on the FAFSA for all freshmen students selected for verification by the Department Of Education.

Important Announcement! Per the Department of Education, the IRS Data Retrieval Tool is available for use when completing a 2020-2021 FAFSA. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool will allow the filed 2018 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.

If you will not use or are not able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, the Office of Student Financial Services will require copies of the Federal Tax Return Transcripts.

The Marist Application is available via your myMarist account provided you are required to submit this application.
