Verification of financial aid application information is required of at least one-third of all applicants and are selected by the Department of Education. During the verification process, the college will compare the information from the students' application with the prior years IRS tax transcript(s) and/or other financial documents. If there are differences between the application information and the financial documents, the college will send corrections electronically to have your information reprocessed. Students selected for verification must complete a verification worksheet (see below) and submit it to the Financial Aid Center along with financial documents. Students requiring assistance may contact the Financial Aid Center. Students who are not selected for verification should not submit these documents.
What students selected for verification should do:
- Independent student: Collect your (and your spouse's) financial documents (signed Federal income tax forms, W-2 forms, Social Security Statement, unemployment verification, etc.).
- Dependent student: Collect your (and your parent's) financial documents (signed Federal income tax forms, W-2 forms, Social Security Statement, unemployment verification, etc).
- Print, and complete with all required signatures.
- Deliver or mail the completed worksheet, tax forms, and any other documents to the Financial Aid Center.
