Which tax year information is required for filling out the CFFS?
In order to determine which tax information you are required to submit, please consider what category you fall under: [A] Incoming students (freshman and/or transfers) or [B] Returning students.
[A] Due to the fact that Hillsdale College awards incoming students early, we will accept prior year tax information until April 15th of that filing year. In other words, if you plan to enroll in the 2013-2014 academic year, we will accept your family’s 2011 tax information until April 15, 2013. After April 15th, we would ask you to submit 2012 tax information.
[B] Returning students are always asked to submit the most recent tax information on their CFFS.
