IDOC is a documentation service managed by the College Board that many private colleges use to collect financial aid application materials.
This service allows you to submit one copy of required financial forms to IDOC where they are scanned. IDOC then delivers the images to each participating school. For instance, many schools that require a copy your federal tax return use IDOC. If you are lucky, many of your schools will use IDOC thereby reducing the amount of time you spend copying documents and sending them off to individual school financial aid offices.
