IDOC is a service that collects family financial documents and distributes them to institutions on behalf of the student.
We've built an interactive slideshow to give you step-by-step instructions on how to fill out IDOC. View the slideshow in a new window as you go through these steps in real time.
Before You Start
You will likely be asked to upload specific year tax returns, W-2 forms, and other financial aid documents for yourself and all of your parents. Parent documents are uploaded by following the same process as the student.
Making sure your family information is correct. This is important to prevent processing delays. When you first sign in to your dashboard, and anytime you upload documents, you will be asked to verify family information. Please take the time to ensure it is correct.
To make sure your documents will be considered on time, submit your required documents by midnight Eastern Time of your earliest deadline. Your required documents and school deadlines are provided on your dashboard after signing in.
In some cases you'll be required to print and sign a financial aid form. You may need access to a printer.
Submit and Track Documents
