NOTE: The federal government has waived the neccesity for V1 verifications for the
2022/2023 aid year. If you were previously selected for V1 Verification for this year,
you no longer need to submit verification paperwork. The information below pertains to FAFSA verification for the 2023/2024 year.
The federal government selects FAFSAs to be verified by the financial aid department.
Our school may also select FAFSAs to be verified. During verification, a financial
aid counselor must confirm that certain data elements on the FAFSA are correct before
a student may receive any financial aid. In order to have payment arrangements made
by the tuition due date, please turn in all requested verification items by the deadlines
- Fall 2023 Priority Verification Deadline: June 1, 2023
Fall 2023 Final Verification Deadline: October 15, 2023
- Spring 2024 Priority Verification Deadline: December 15, 2023
Spring 2024 Final Verification Deadline: March 15, 2024
Failure to submit documentation by the final verification deadline may result in loss
of financial aid eligibility. Our office is not required to complete verification
after the final deadline has passed. Students may appeal to the Director of Financial
Aid for an extension to the deadline.
Tax return information is required as part of the verification process. When sending
tax information (returns or transcripts), the preferred method is to upload the documents
by going to your BannerWEB portal, clicking on the “Financial Aid” box and then clicking
on “Financial Aid Documents”; documents must be in pdf format. Otherwise, please mail,
fax, or send through an encrypted or password protected email. The password should
be sent in a separate email. Emails that are not password protected will not be accepted
and the individual will be asked to send the tax information again through one of
the acceptable methods. When faxing or emailing tax documentation to us, for your
security, please block out all SSNs, leaving only the last 4 digits for identification
purposes. If your 2023-2024 FAFSA is selected for verification, we must confirm 2021 income
tax information reported on the FAFSA. Contact information for the Office of Financial
Aid is listed on the instruction page of the verification form.
