Verification is a process by which students are randomly selected by the Department of Education to submit documentation to verify the accuracy of infomation on student FAFSA's. Mott Community College is required to participate in the verification process.
There are multiple ways to know if you must complete the Verification process.
Additional documentation may be requested by Student Financial Services. Some of these forms can be found on the online form center or at the Information Kiosk, or by coming into Student Financial Services.
Please do not send in documentation unless it is requested from you. This may delay your Aid being awarded if you do.
There are a number of ways to access your tax information that will provide Financial Aid with an acceptable form of documentation.
When requesting tax documents from the IRS, the information you provide must match what is on record with IRS records. Otherwise, you will not be able to access your information or receive the appropriate documentation. Requests submitted by telephone online or with a 4506-T typically arrive in 5 to 10 days. If you amended your tax return or if you worked but did not file, there are requirements other than the tax return transcript that must be submitted:
You must submit a signed copy of your 1040x† and a signed copy of your Original IRS Tax Return (either the Original Tax Return Transcript or the SIGNED copy of your 1040, 1040A or 1040ez).
† You may be required to have the documents stamped by the IRS.
