Adding and deleting colleges? Tax Income

Postby juicyx3 » Sat Feb 09, 2013 8:15 pm

I completed my FAFSA using my 2011 tax form and added my first ten schools. Today, I received my 2012 tax form.

I want to delete the first ten schools I added and add the second ten schools I applied to.

Now that I am going to input my 2012 tax income information on FAFSA, do I need to still put the schools I want to delete( the first ten schools) and wait for it to process until I can add the other schools(the second ten schools) because i am not sure if the first ten schools will receive my 2012 info and only have my 2011 if i deleted it.

ALSO, when i completed the FAFSA using 2011 tax info, i dont see any direct link to TAP. Is it because i only input 2011 info that time? so if i am to add my 2012 later today, i can see a direct link to TAP after FAFSA completion?

Not a direct answer, but from my experience- by adding schools after the fact, or adding schools you have no intention of applying to, will cause you a lot of hurdles come time to receive your funds- my school now says 'since you've sent your FAFSA to two other schools- your financial aid will be placed on hold until we verify that you are not enrolled in those other schools'. And you're adding ten schools? Might want to determine the soonest you can delete from your FAFSA (make corrections) the schools you won't be attending, to prevent this sort of roadblock.

If you want to add your 2012 taxes you will want to use the 2013/2014 FAFSA application. This was made available on January 1st of 2013.

For more information on the FAFSA and why deadlines/date are important to know, visit
