Verification Materials for Students and Parents
If you have been selected for a process called verification we have requested that you submit a Verification Worksheet along with appropriate federal tax documents. Make sure you complete the Verification Worksheet and provide all necessary signatures before you submit it to the financial aid office. Be sure to not leave any line blank and indicate zero whenever applicable. Incomplete forms will cause a delay in processing your aid application.
