Tips for verification


To expedite the processing of your financial aid file if it is selected for verification:

  • Start early and check the accuracy of your answers against the documents you used to complete any form.
  • Submit all required documentation as requested in a timely manner. Ample processing time is needed to ensure adherence to federal regulations. The longer you wait to submit required documentation, the longer verification will take.
  • List your name and Student ID at the top of all documents submitted.
  • To request a transcript of your tax return to be mailed or faxed to you, call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.
