If you have been selected for a process called verification, Wiley College will be comparing information from your FAFSA with your (and your spouse’s, if you are married) and/or your parents’ Income Tax Return Transcript, or with W-2 forms or other financial documents. Federal Regulations state we have the right to ask you for this information before awarding Federal aid.
How do I complete verification?
We encourage those selected for verification to submit the required documents as soon as possible to avoid delays in payment of tuition/fees and delays on receiving book allowance (if eligible) before the term starts. Students are emailed Missing Information Letters that explain why their financial aid file is incomplete and what documents they need to be submit or what actions need to be taken to complete their financial aid file.
To complete verification students must:
- Complete and submit the appropriate Verification Worksheet.
- If you did not use the “Link to IRS” feature on the FAFSA, request an IRS Tax Return Transcript.
- Submit copies of any sources of untaxed income as indicated on the verification form.
What procedures do we follow to correct FAFSA data?
If there are differences between your application information and your financial documents, the Office of Student Financial Aid will need to make corrections electronically. Since corrections may take some time to process, we encourage all students to submit the appropriate documents in a timely manner. If the corrections change your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and if you submit the appropriate verification form and required documentation in person, we will let you know of any changes that may affect your eligibility amount at that moment. We will also mail you an award notification letter. While your correction is being processed your file is considered incomplete and funds will not be awarded.
