New! 2013-14 Verification requirements
If your 2013-14 FAFSA application is selected for Verification, make sure you understand what documents you need to submit. Not all applicants will be asked to submit the same documents.
The Department of Education has regulations to ensure that only eligible students receive financial aid. Verification is the process used to confirm information you provided on the FAFSA. If your SAR has been selected for Verification, SPC will send a written request for documentation by mail and SPC student email. In addition, your TO DO LIST on MySPC will list any required documents. Not all applicants will be asked to submit the same documents. You may be asked to provide different documents than you have submitted in previous years.
Verification documents may include IRS Tax Transcripts, a completed Verification Worksheet, or other documents. In some circumstances, you may go back to your FAFSA application and use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to download your income information. If you are unable to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, submit an IRS Tax Transcript. You may no longer submit copies of tax returns (IRS 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ), with the exception of tax returns from Puerto Rico or foreign income tax returns.
Please submit all documents with your Student Name and Student ID written clearly at the top of each page. Do not submit original documents. Make copies of what you submit.
To submit Verification documents, you may bring them into Registration, fax them to 727-791-2495, or e-mail them to email@example.com.
Your file will not be complete until all requested documents are received and processed by Financial Assistance Services. The verification process may delay the awarding of financial assistance if corrections need to be submitted to the federal processor. If you have questions, visit Registration on your campus or call 727-791-2485.
