|What is Verification?|
Verification is a process to confirm the information you provided on FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This may be random or because FAFSA data was incomplete, estimated or inconsistent. The U.S. Department of Education selects some students for the verification process. Also, the financial aid office may need to verify data if there is conflicting information.
As part of the verification process, you will be asked to complete a verification worksheet and may have to submit an IRS tax transcript, W-2s and 1099s. If you are a dependent student, you may be required to provide your parent(s) IRS tax transcript, W-2s and 1099s.
|How do I know if I am selected for verification?|
To view your aid status, as well as the forms required to complete verification at Ventura College, login to your MyVCCCD portal
We may also send you emails telling you to complete verification. Please open and read all correspondence from us, then respond within 14 days.
|What information do I need to submit?|
For the 2013-2014 academic year:
The financial aid office no longer accepts signed copies of federal tax returns (1040, 1040A or 1040EZ) as required by federal regulations.
NOTE: If you are applying for aid at other colleges, please make a copy of your IRS tax return transcript for your records before you submit it to the financial aid office. We will not keep paper copies.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, priority deadline to complete file for Fall 2013 is June 13, 2013. Files completed after June 13, 2013 will be processed on a first-come, first served basis.
|How to Avoid Verification Processing Delays|
We strongly recommend that you submit all documents in person within 14 days of receipt of the verification notice.
Submit all documents at the same time to:
|After Verification is Complete|
If the information reported on your FAFSA is confirmed, the financial aid office can determine your eligibility for financial aid. We will notify you to check your financial aid eligibility on your MyVCCCD portal.
If we find conflicts between the data reported on your FAFSA and the information that you submitted to the financial aid office, you may be required to submit additional documentation. You can monitor the status of additional information on your MyVCCCD portal. The financial aid office may also be making corrections to your FAFSA. A "Pending Corrections" document will be posted and cleared once we receive an accurate FAFSA. We will notify you to check your financial aid eligibility on your MyVCCCD portal.
|Expect Financial Aid E-mails|
If you are eligible for federal student aid we will send an award notice to the e-mail address on your FAFSA. All document requests must be completed before any financial aid can be disbursed to your account.
Failure to submit all requested documentation will result in the forfeiture of your financial aid eligibility.
