July 15 - Verification Documents Are Due
Please make sure to check your To Do Lists on your UCSC student portal for any requested financial aid documents. If you are currently experiencing difficulty retrieving your 2015 tax transcript online via the IRS website, you can submit the 4506T form to the IRS in order to have the 2015 tax transcript mailed directly to you. Please note we are exercising flexibility on the submission of your required documentation. Please make best effort to submit this documentation by the July 15 deadline. If documentation is submitted late, we cannot guarantee aid to be available prior to the fee deadline.
