Verification Requirements

If your FAFSA is selected for verification there are a few additional documents we will require from you. Both you and your parents will either need to use the data retrieval tool on your FAFSA to upload your tax return or you will need to request a tax transcript from the IRS. The easiest way to request a tax transcript is online through the IRS website. Once you have received your tax transcript, please send it to our office by mail or fax.

If you are a dependent student, you will also need to complete the dependent student verification worksheet and return it to our office. If you are considered an independent student, you will need to complete the independent student verification worksheet.
