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. This includes but is not limited to the following:
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 you are asked to confirm your income with a W-2, 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.
