Financial Aid Forms 2021-2022

Please note that the 2021-2022 financial aid year will be FOUR (4) quarters with Summer 2022 being a "Trailer" quarter at the end of the year. That means for Summer 2022 aid, we will be using the 2021-2022 FAFSA. The quarters for the 2021-2022 year will be:

  • Fall 2021
  • Winter 2022
  • Spring 2022
  • Summer 2022

What this means for you: PLAN ACCORDINGLY. Students who receive Pell Grant at the full-time level each quarter are usually eligible for Pell Grant in the summer, subject to percentage of Pell used at another school, if any, during the FAFSA aid year.    Student loans have an annual limit, so keep the 4-quarter year in mind when filling out your loan requests. Remember that there are also lifetime limits for grants and loans.

In some cases our office will request that a student verify the information entered on the FAFSA. If our office requires this information, we will notify the student and the student should use one of the following worksheets to submit the information to our office. Please read the following carefully and choose the appropriate verification worksheet for your status.

2021-2022 Verification Worksheet - Dependent

If your application has been selected for a process called verification and you had to list your parents information on your financial aid application (FAFSA), you will need this form.

If there are differences from what was reported, we may need to make a correction to your application.

2021-2022 Verification Worksheet - Independent

If your application has been selected for a process called verification and you were not required to list your parents information on your financial aid application (FAFSA), you will need this form.  Verification is a process where our office will be comparing information that was listed on your FAFSA to copies of your income and tax information.

2021-2022 Identity Verification Worksheet

If your application has been selected for a process called IDENTITY Verification, you will need this form.  If you have been selected for Identity Verification, we are not able to continue processing your file until this issue is resolved. 

This type of verification has some very specific instructions that are required by federal regulations. Please download and carefully read the instructions on page 3 before completing the form. 

You should only submit this form if you were selected for Identity Verification. This verification is different from and in addition to any standard verification of your income and household size.

Please note that this is not the same as the full standard verification worksheet, it is specific to household and number in college.   You may be asked for additional documentation to resolve any discrepancies or conflicting information.

Requesting a Tax Return Transcript from IRS  

TAXFILERS: If your application has been selected for verification and you were not able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to successfully move your 2019 tax information to your financial aid application (FAFSA), you may be able to download a Tax Return Transcript directly from the IRS online at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript .  

Currently, this is the only way to get a Tax Return transcript from the IRS.  If you are not able to access and download your transcript, you may submit a copy of your 2019 tax return, complete with any schedules attached, with your verification worksheet.

Requesting a "Verification of Non-Filing Letter"

NON-TAXFILERS:  New federal regulations require independent students/spouses, and parents of dependent students that are selected for verification and indicate non-taxfiling status to submit proof that they didn't file an IRS Tax Return for 2019. If you need to request this document, you may be able to download the "Verification of Non-Filing Letter" directly from the IRS online at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript .  

ALTERNATE OPTION:  Currently, downloading from the IRS website is the only way to get the "Verification of Non-Filing Letter" from the IRS.  If you are not able to access and download this document, you may download, complete and submit this Letter of Nonfiling Statement instead. 

  • Each nonfiler should complete a separate Letter of Nonfiling Statement.  For example, if and independent student and spouse were both non-filers in 2019, each one should complete the statement.  For dependent students, if both parents were non-filers both would need to complete a statement. 

  • Dependent students do not need to submit this, as they are not required to get a Letter of Non-filing.
Requesting "Wage and Income Transcript"  which includes information from W2s, 1099s, etc.)   

Need to submit your W2's or 1099s but can't locate them?

Loans, unlike grants or work-study, are borrowed money that must be repaid, with interest. These are real loans-just like car loans or mortgages. You cannot have these loans canceled because you didn't like the education you received or because you're having financial difficulty. These loans are a serious obligation, so think about the amount you'll have to repay over the years before you take out a loan. Please read instructions carefully and submit the appropriate loan worksheet for the loan(s) you are requesting.  For additional information on loans, please visit our loan information page.
