Verification Procedures


The Institution must verify applications selected by the Department of Education for students who will receive subsidized student financial assistance.

Subsidized Student Financial Assistance Programs:
Title IV programs for which eligibility is determined by the EFC. These include the Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Work-Study (FWS), Perkins Loan and Direct Subsidized Loan programs.

Students awarded Federal Work-Study or Perkins Loan funds must complete the verification worksheet and provide additional documents requested by the Student Fiscal Affairs Office (SFAO).


Unsubsidized Student Financial Assistance Programs:

Title IV programs for which eligibility is not based on the EFC. These include the Teacher Education Assistance for college and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant, Direct Unsubsidized Loan and Direct PLUS Loan programs.

 The SFAO reserves the right to require students to provide additional documentation (including IRS tax transcripts) in order to verify inconsistent information.
