Financial Aid News and Updates


  • The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is available online January 1. Methodist University's Federal School Code is 002946-00.
  • Requesting IRS Tax Return Transcripts from the IRS: To obtain an IRS Tax Return Transcript, click above. After user authentication, students or parents will provide the reason for the request, select the year(s), type(s) of information requested, and other requested information and the document will be displayed in a PRINTABLE format. Make sure to request the “IRS Tax Return Transcript” and not the “IRS Tax Account Transcript.” Use the Social Security Number (or the IRS individual taxpayer identification number) and the date of birth of the first person listed on the IRS income tax return, and the address on file with the IRS (normally this will be the address used on the IRS income tax return). In most cases, for electronic filers, a IRS Tax Return Transcript may be requested from the IRS within 2-3 weeks after the IRS income tax return has been accepted by the IRS. Generally, for filers of paper IRS income tax returns, the IRS Tax Return Transcript may be requested within 8-11 weeks after the paper IRS income tax return has been received by the IRS.
