What is a Wage and Income Transcript?

There are many times when you may be asked to submit a copy of income earned from a previous tax year as a student using Financial Aid.

Some of these occasions include, but are not limited to: You were selected for Verification, you did not file taxes but you earned wages, there was an error code on your FAFSA, CSU-Global needs to confirm your income vs. your spouse's  income, you filed a Professional Judgment. 

In the event that you are asked to confirm your income with a W2, CSU-Global may need the official tax document from the IRS called a "Wage and Income Transcript". This transcript can be requested online, via the IRS website.
