Verification is a federal financial aid requirement in which the Department of Education or the institution selects applicants for a review process of comparing information reported on the FAFSA to specified documents. Verification for 2016-2017 requires a student to complete one of the five verification worksheets available as requested by the Student Finance Office. We are unable to accept copies of federal tax returns. Tax Return Transcripts can be requested from the IRS immediately at www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript. Instructions on verification documents, contact information and other requirements are available here.
You can now easily submit your Verification forms online here. If any additional documents are required to complete the verification process, you will be contacted by the Student Finance Office.
