Important Changes Regarding Verification
Verification Changes for 2012-13
If you have already completed your FAFSA and were selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education, you are required to submit the following information to our office:
- Copy of 2011 tax return transcript
- You can choose the IRS data retrieval tool by submitting a correction to your FAFSA. If your tax information is successfully retrieved from the IRS, you will NOT be required to submit the tax return transcript. Please allow at least 2 weeks from the date you submitted your tax return to the IRS before making the correction.
