Was your FAFSA selected for verification?
If so, please submit the following documentation to the Financial Aid Office:
- Dependent Verification Worksheet [pdf]
- Copy of parent's 2013 Federal Tax Return Transcript*
- Copy of parent's 2013 W-2's
- Copy of student's 2013 Federal Tax Return Transcript*

If you are an Independent student, please submit the Independent Verification Worksheet [pdf] and your spouse's (if applicable) Federal Tax Return Transcript* and W-2's.
*We cannot accept copies of Federal Tax Return(s) for verification. Instead, we need to collect Federal Tax Return Transcripts. You can obtain a Federal Tax Return Transcript online OR by calling 1-800-908-9946.
Parents and students that request that tax data be loaded from the IRS database using the IRS Data Retrieval tool on the student's FAFSA may be waived from providing the Federal Tax Return Transcript. Check out a short IRS Data Retrieval video on YouTube for more information.
