Your - Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for review in a process
called verification. The law says that before awarding Federal Student Aid, we may
ask you to confirm the information you and your spouse, if married reported on your
FAFSA. To verify that you provided correct information the financial aid administrator
at your school will compare your FAFSA with the information on this worksheet and
with any other required documents. If there are differences, your FAFSA information
may need to be corrected. You and at least one parent must complete and sign this
worksheet, attach any required documents, and submit the form and other required documents
to the financial aid administrator at your school. Your school may ask for additional
information. If you have questions about verification, contact your financial aid
administrator as soon as possible so that your financial aid will not be delayed.

Student Income Information
Important Note: The instructions below apply to the student and spouse, if the student is married.
Notify the financial aid office if the student or spouse filed separate IRS income
tax returns for or had a change in marital status after December 31, .
Instructions: Complete this section if the student and spouse filed or will file a IRS income tax return(s). The best way to verify income is by using the IRS Data
Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) that is part of FAFSA on the Web at FAFSA.gov. In most cases,
no further documentation is needed to verify income information that was transferred into the student's FAFSA using the IRS DRT
if that information was not changed by the FAFSA filer.
