FINANCIAL AID VERIFICATION WORKSHEET
2016 – 2017
What is Verification?
The U.S. Department of Education (ED) randomly selects students at each institution for schools to verify information on their
FAFSA. Your FAFSA has been selected for us to collect and verify information related to your FAFSA answers.
• Complete all sections of this worksheet. Write “0” for any income not received and “N/A” for sections that do not apply.
• Collect requested 2015 financial documents, for you and your spouse (if married) or for your parent(s) (if dependent).
• Submit this completed form, along with the required financial documents to the address, fax, or email at the top of this page.
Documents must be submitted within 14 days of the initial request to avoid a significant delay in receiving your financial aid. We will
notify you if additional information is needed. This process takes several weeks to complete, so prompt attention to this request is
essential for the timely processing of your financial aid.
