FAFSA Information


Each year, the federal government provides more than $150 billion in Financial Aid to college students. To apply for Federal Student Aid, students need to complete the  Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA ®) form . Completing and submitting the FAFSA form is free and gives you access to the largest source of college financial aid. Aid such as Free Grant Money, Work Study Eligibility, and Student Loans that you do not have to pay back until after graduation!

Simple Steps to Complete a FAFSA

  • Create your FSA ID
  • File a FAFSA every October
  • List McMurry University as your school
  • Use the Data Retrieval Tool



The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) will be available on October 1 along with the FAFSA each year. There will be increased security from the IRS when using this tool. When you link to the IRS website from the FAFSA website, you will not be able to see your tax data on the IRS DRT web page. If you or your parent agree to transfer your data back into the FAFSA form, you will not see the data on the FAFSA website either. You will see the words 'Transferred from the IRS' in the data fields throughout the online FAFSA.
