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. There have been significant changes to the verification process beginning in 2013-14, and 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.

If your FAFSA is selected for Verification, make sure you understand what documents you need to submit. The documents you need to submit will be located on your "To Do List" in your MySeminoleState Student Center. Verification documents may include IRS Tax Transcripts, a completed Verification Worksheet or other documents. 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 (copies only) with your name and student ID number written clearly at the top of each page to a student success specialist in Student Servcies on any campus. Do not submit original documents. Please note that certain documents will require you to come to campus in person to sign the document and present a valid driver's license or State-issued ID.

Your file will not be complete until all requested documents are received and processed by Financial Aid. 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 Student Services on any campus to speak to a specialist, or call 407.708.2045.
