All students are subject to Verification. Students whose applications for federal student aid (FAFSA) have been selected for verification will be required to submit documentation necessary to complete the verification process. Students will be notified by the college financial aid office as to what documentation is required. The documentation may include some or all of the following:
- Verification Worksheet
- Federal Tax Return Transcripts for the applicant
- Federal Tax Return Transcripts of the applicant’s parents (if the student is considered dependent for financial aid purposes)
- IRS Statement of Non-filing
- Verification of Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose
- Proof of High School completion or its equivalent
Applicants should be aware that, until all required documentation has been received and reviewed by the Financial Aid Office, no federal student aid will be offered and/ or disbursed. The documentation must be submitted within fourteen days of request or by the end of the academic year, whichever comes first. If documentation verifies the information submitted on the original application, financial aid will be offered and disbursed as soon as admission, registration and class attendance can be confirmed. If the documentation indicates the need for corrections, the corrections will be submitted electronically to the Department of Education by the Financial Aid Office. The student will receive a revised Student Aid Report from the Department of Education.
