The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is the fastest and most efficient way to import income information. It allows you and your student access to your tax information and to transfer that information directly to the student’s FAFSA. Click here for detailed steps.

Also, remember to help your student complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA, if you have not already done so. Use N.C. A&T school code #002905. Students and parents must request a Federal Student Aid ID to electronically sign the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. A Renewal FAFSA must be completed each academic year.


If selected for financial aid verification, your student cannot be awarded until verification is complete. Verification is the process of verifying the information reported on the FAFSA in comparison to your student and your tax returns. For more information, contact Student Financial Aid at 800-443-0835 or via email at finaid@ncat.edu.


You can pay your student’s bill(s) online via an electronic check or credit card. Need more time? Set-up a payment plan. Choose between a four month or five month plan. You can pay in person with cash, money order or certified check. To pay online, your student must set you up as an “authorized user”. Pay here.


As your student makes the big leap from high school to college, we know and understand that things can get lost in translation. To help keep you informed, the Academic Calendar can guide you around your student’s schedule.
