Our forms are interactive PDFs that you can complete on your computer. Please use Adobe Acrobat to complete the forms; using your browser or using Mac Preview will not allow us to properly view the documents. We also ask that you do not use EchoSign to send interactive PDFs.

If the interactive PDF option does not work for you, you are welcome to complete your form by hand, scan it as a regular PDF, and send it via e-mail to financialaid@tc.edu. You may also fax, mail, or bring your documents in to our office at Thompson 134. You must include your TC ID number (T########) on all documentation you submit to our office.

Financial Aid Guides & Tools

2013-2014 Student Budgeting Worksheets:
Note: These guides are intended to help you budget for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014. Fall/Spring students are enrolled for a total of nine months, which is the number of months used to determine some of the numbers found in the budget(s). If you intend to enroll in only one term, or if you plan to enroll in the summer, contact our office to discuss your budget.

2014-2015 Verification Documents:
Note: To complete the paperwork necessary for verification, please refer to the e-mail you received from our office notifying you of the outstanding requirements. You should also refer to your Student Aid Report (SAR) that gets sent to you via e-mail after you complete the FAFSA. You must read the directions on these worksheets thoroughly and complete all appropriate paperwork to avoid delays in disbursement of aid.

These forms are interactive PDFs that are not compatible with Mac Preview. If you plan to submit these documents to us electronically, please use Adobe Acrobat.

Obtaining an IRS Tax Return Transcript:
  • Go to www.irs.gov and click on the “Order a Return or Account Transcript” link. You may also call 1-800-908-9946 to place the order. **Make sure to request the “IRS tax return transcript” and not the “IRS tax account transcript."**
  • You will need your Social Security Number, date of birth, and the address on file with the IRS (normally this will be the address used when your 2011 IRS tax return was filed).
  • It takes up to two weeks for IRS income information to be available for electronic IRS tax return filers, and up to eight weeks for paper IRS tax return filers.
  • If you are married and you and your spouse filed separate 2011 tax returns, you must submit tax return transcripts for both you and your spouse.
  • The IRS will send you (not Teachers College) a copy of the tax return transcript. You should make two copies: one for your records and one for ours.
