Admission Checklist

In order to comply with Federal regulations we may ask you to provide information that verifies the data you provided on your FAFSA. This information could include, but is not limited to, using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, an official tax transcript, your parent’s official tax transcript and independent or dependent verification forms.

Requests for information will be done through your MaineStreet To Do List and will include detailed instructions and links to specific forms. It is very important you respond to these requests by the due date listed and follow instructions closely otherwise you will be considered a late filer and your aid could be affected.

You do not need to send us supporting documents unless we request them specifically from you.

Please make sure you fill out the forms completely (leave no field blank) and include your Student ID (7 digit number) on all documents. Failure to follow instructions carefully will delay processing.

If you are ineligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool and must submit a tax transcript to our office.  You may request a transcript at

Please note: If you or your parents are required to submit official tax transcripts it will take approximately 5-10 business days after your tax return has been processed to receive the transcript. Electronically filed tax returns take approximately 1-2 weeks to process after the return has been filed.  Paper filed tax returns take approximately 6-8 weeks to process after the return has been filed.

For all amended tax return filers: You must submit a signed copy of your original tax return (Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ) and a copy of the amended tax return (1040X). This is the only instance where you may submit a tax return.


** Parents and/or students that filed a joint tax return and are separated/divorced, should contact our office for further instructions**
