educational loans. You and your parent(s) must apply for separate PINs.
January 2012
Parents and students should file tax returns (electronic preferred) as soon as possible.
If you cannot wait until the IRS Data Retrieval Process becomes available on February 1 (due to private loan or
scholarship deadlines), submit your FAFSA in January and monitor your myUH account in the event that more
documentation is needed because you have been selected for verification. It is strongly encouraged that you wait
until February if possible.

Process allows the applicant to view and transfer IRS tax return data directly from the IRS website into the
appropriate fields on the FAFSA.
