WHY MUST I COMPLETE THIS WORKSHEET?
Your 2008-2009 financial aid application has been selected for a review process called “verification.” Federal Law requires the
applicant and his/her family to participate in the verification process, which is used to ensure the accuracy of the information
reported on the student’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The student has 30 days to complete the
verification process. Failure to provide all required documentation within 30 days after receiving notification may result
in the student’s inability to receive federal financial assistance. When all information is received, the information will be
reviewed for accuracy, and conflicting or inconsistent information will be corrected. Note: If you have applied for an
extension for filing the 2007 Federal Tax Return, a copy of the approved extension must be submitted to extend the above
30-day rule. However, no financial aid will be disbursed until all documents requested have been submitted. Send all
documentation, including this worksheet, to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETION
