2020-2021 Financial Aid Application Checklist

In order to be considered for Penn need-based financial aid, you must submit all of the following information by the dates listed.

The Accelerated Nursing Program requires you to submit both the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 FAFSAs to the U.S. Department of Education, which you can do online. We suggest using the IRS data retrieval tool for accuracy.

Penn's Federal School Code is 003378.

Federal Tax Returns

Submit parent and student 2018 federal income tax returns, including all schedules, pages, and W-2 forms, to Student Financial Services. Parent information must be included unless you will over age 30 by December 31, 2019.

Note: Don't file taxes? You still need to submit a Tax I.D. Form confirming your non-filer status or your application will remain incomplete.

How to Submit Documents to SRFS

Please send your tax returns directly to SFS, as Penn does not participate in CSS/IDOC Services.
