FAFSA Information

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 are continual changes each year related to the verification process, 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. This information will be found on your To-Do List in your MySeminoleState Student Center. Verification documents may include IRS Tax Transcripts, a completed Verification Worksheet or other documents. 

For Summer Term 2017: 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.

For Fall Term 2017 and onward: You will be required to submit your verification documents via your Student Verification Portal.  The link can be found within your To-Do List item located in your MySeminoleState Student Center.

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 aid if corrections need to be submitted to the federal processor.

399 Comment Code

The 2016-17 FAFSA and the 2017-18 FAFSA require information from the same tax year (2015).  Due to this one-time duplication, some students may receive a 399 Comment Code associated with their 2018 FAFSA. This is due to conflicting information between the two years of FAFSA information. Seminole State is required to resolve the information prior to disbursing any additional federal financial aid.  You will be notified by the Department of Education if you have a 399 Comment Code via your Student Aid Report (SAR).  Seminole State's Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will send additional information via your Message Center located in your Student Center if you need to submit additional documents to assist in resolving the conflicting information.

If you have questions, visit Student Services on any campus to speak to a specialist, or call 407.708.2045.
