Quick Financial Aid Assessment FAQ

What are the requirements for financial aid?
The financial need evaluation is different for every school and every family. We take into account all aspects of your
financial situation during the evaluation.

What documentation will I need to complete the application?
The required supporting documentation will be outlined at the beginning and end of the online application and is
tailored specifically to what is entered on your application. Typically, TADS requires your most recently filed 1040 tax
form (or verification of non-filing status from the IRS), your most recent W-2 statements, your most recent pay stubs as
well as documentation of the stated debt on your application. Other documentation may be required.

How can I send in the supporting documentation?
You may mail, fax or upload your documentation to TADS. We will give you document submission information at the
end of the application.

What if I want to leave my online application and come back to it later?
You may log back in to the TADS system and complete the application at any time.

How do I know if you have received my fax, mail or upload?
TADS will send you an email within 48 business hours of receiving your fax, mailed document or upload.

If my circumstances change, can I change my application?
Please call the TADS helpline if you need to adjust your application, a TADS representative will ask for documentation of
these changes to be submitted by mail, fax or upload.

What if I have other questions?
TADS is here to help! You may contact us Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM Central Time at 800-477-8237, or through our online chat at
