Applying for Aid
*IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT YOUR FAFSA APPLICATION
The U.S. Dept. of Education randomly selects a portion of all FAFSA applications for verification. A school is required to collect documentation verifying the FAFSA has been completed accurately. After we receive your FAFSA result, you may receive a letter or an email requesting additional information to verify the data submitted on the FAFSA. If you are selected, verification must be completed before our office can consider you for financial assistance. For the verification process, complete the following steps:
- Complete the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on FAFSA or submit a copy of your federal income tax return transcript and W-2s.
- Complete the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on FAFSA or submit a copy of your parent(s) federal income tax transcript and W-2s (if you’re considered a dependent based on FAFSA dependency questions)
- Complete the Institutional Verification Form (IVF).
- Provide other information as requested by our office as part of the verification process.
Please note: Any person who intentionally makes false statements or misrepresentations on a federal aid application is violating the law and subject to a fine, imprisonment or both under the provision of the U.S. Criminal Code.
