Fall 2017 - Spring 2018 Information:
On April 24, 2017, the Department of Education relaxed some of the verification procedures for schools:
- If students and/or parents were asked to complete the "Student Tax Filing Verification" or "Parent Tax Filing Verification" form, a signed copy of the 2015 Tax Return (1040, 1040A, etc), along with the Student/Parent Verification form are now accepted.
- If students and/or parents were asked to obtain "Verification of Non Tax Filing Status", complete the Non-Tax Filing Verification Form and submit W-2's, if required.
Students selected for Fall 2017 - Spring 2018verification must have had all requested financial aid documents completed by 4:30 pm, on May 26, to have been considered for maximum funding.
- What happens next after submitting a FAFSA or a CA Dream Act Application?
Parents who do not have a social security number will not be able to create a FSA ID and will have to sign their student's FAFSA by completing a signature page and mailing the page to FAFSA.
To qualify for a tuition fee deferral and prevent enrollment cancellation, students selected for verification must complete all requested financial aid documents by:
- June 30, 2017 for Fall 2017
- December 14, 2017 for Spring 2018
