Tuition Payment Plan

We want your college education to be comprehensive, enjoyable and affordable. Bloomsburg University is committed to assisting you in accessing effective financial aid resources and helping you financially plan your education for long-term success.

IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) Available for the 2018-19 FAFSA

Students and families are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when completing the 2018-19 FAFSA. To address privacy and security concerns, tax return information will be encrypted and hidden from view on the IRS DRT web page, as well as on the FAFSA. Instead of the transferred information, applicants and parents will see the words “Transferred from the IRS” in the data entry fields throughout the online FAFSA form and on the Student Aid Report (SAR).

If you plan to be enrolled in degree program at Bloomsburg University in the 2018-2019 academic year (Summer 2018, Fall 2018, or Spring 2019 semesters) and require financial aid, please remember to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2018-2019 academic year if you have not already done so. The FAFSA is required to process all forms of financial aid including grants, loans, and work-study.

• When completing the FAFSA, use tax information from the prior-prior year (2016).

• Upperclassmen packaging for the 2018-19 academic year will occur after the Spring 2018 grades have been posted in MyHusky.

    For incoming Freshmen and incoming Transfer students scholarships applications are available beginning November 1, 2017. The priority deadline is January 15, 2018.
    For currently enrolled students scholarship applications are available beginning January 1, 2018. The deadline is March 1, 2018.

• A signed FERPA form must be on file in order to release information to anyone other than the student.
