FINANCIAL AID FAQs

What is verification?

The U.S. Department of Education requires a college's financial aid office to verify the accuracy of FAFSA data. A student may be asked to submit documents, such as a federal income tax return transcript W-2's, or proof of identity to the financial aid office before student gets aid. If the requested documents are not provided, it may mean cancellation of financial aid. Aid will be delayed until documents have been received and processed. All requested documents MUST be turned in together! To avoid delays, we ask that you submit a all requested items by the following dates:

  • Fall - June 1
  • Spring - November 1
  • Summer - March 1
