The IRS Get Transcript Online is Unavailable for New Users Only. Users who had already established an account with the IRS for using this service are still able to login to the Get Transcript Online service. The IRS recently suspended for new users the availability of the Get Transcript Online service which provides an immediate PDF version of a tax transcript. While there is no estimate for how long the tool may be unavailable to new users, Federal Student Aid (FSA) is in communication with the IRS and understands that they are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. In the meantime, several other methods to obtain a transcript from the IRS, including IRS Get Transcript by Mail. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.

The HSU Financial Aid Office has several forms available for both students and parents based on a variety of circumstances such as verification, reporting enrollment changes or outside resources, including requesting loans to submitting an appeal. Regardless of the reason, here a few tips to help you along the way:
  • Check for critical requested Financial Aid items! Log into myHumboldt and review My Checklists or your Student Center's To-Do-List. Make sure that you are submitting the correct form.
  • Only submit requested forms! Submitting unrequested forms creates a delay in service to your file as well as other student files.
  • Refrain from submitting forms multiple times! Submitting duplicate forms creates a delay in service to your file as well as other student files.
  • Once you submit the Form, the student’s To-Do-List will be updated within 3-5 business days to indicate the form or document has been received. However, your file will only be reviewed when all documents requested have been received. Counselors review files in the order they completed and the review process may take 3-5 weeks.
  • Use the UPLOAD A DOCUMENT feature in FORMS! If you need to submit other documents such as a W-2, a Tax Return Transcript, supporting documentation, or documents for your parents, please use the Upload a Document feature. Make sure to always include your HSU ID# on all submitted forms and documents. You can also submit documents to our office via fax at 707.826.5360 or you can stop by in person Monday - Friday from 8am - 5pm.
