2016-2017 Forms

VerificationVerification is a review process in which the FAO determines the accuracy of the information provided on the student's financial aid application. During the verification process the student and parent will be required to submit documentation for the amounts listed (or not listed) on the financial aid application. Such documentation may include signed copies of the most recent Federal income tax returns for the student, spouse (if any) and their parents. Financial aid applications are randomly selected by the Federal processor for verification, with most schools verifying at least 1/3 of all applications. Schools may select additional students for verification if they suspect fraud. Some schools undergo 100% verification. If any discrepancies are uncovered during verification, the financial aid office may require additional information to clear up the discrepancies. Such discrepancies may cause a student's final financial aid package to be different from the initial package described on the award letter they received from the school. If the student refuses to submit the above mentioned documentation, the financial aid package will be canceled and no aid will be awarded. Statements
