To all returning students and prospective students:
If you received a letter from the Financial Aid Office that asked for proof of taxes and/or proof of non-filing of taxes, the Department of Education has just made getting the documentation easier! Bring us a signed copy of your/parents 2015 taxes, and we can use this for our verification process. We are in the process of going through our files to resend requests, so don’t be alarmed if you receive another email from us. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 870-574-4511.
Southern Arkansas University Tech’s Financial Aid Office is here to help YOU seek funds for college!

Important Information about the FAFSA:
When completing the FAFSA (Federal Application for Federal Student Aid), the Financial Aid Office strongly encourages you and your parents (if required) to select the IRS Data Retrieval Option. Choosing not to use this tool could result in a delay to your Financial Aid Award. You can now file your FAFSA as early as October 1 as the federal government is allowing the use of tax information from the current year. This reduces the need to wait until after taxes are filed in the spring. Get an early start! If you have any questions or want more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
