The federal government randomly selects students for a process called verification.¬† Being selected for verification means that you need to provide additional documentation to the College so that we can verify the information that was reported in your FAFSA.¬† This may include the submission of tax records or W-2 information, for example.
The Financial Aid Office¬† will notify you if you are selected for verification.¬† If you are selected for verification, it is very important that you return any documents or forms as soon as possible so that your eligibility for financial aid can be determined. ¬†Students selected for verification also need to complete a Verification Worksheet.¬† This document can be found under the student’s EAGLE account.
Please note that WCCC cannot finalize any financial aid for you until you successfully complete the application process, so it is very important for you to submit documentation as quickly as possible.¬† Note also that if you are under consideration for assistance under the State’s Tuition Aid Grant (TAG) program, you may be contacted directly by that agency for additional information.¬†¬†The FAFSA www.fafsa.ed.gov application is available as early as October 1 for the next fall semester.¬† Please apply as early as possible to ensure processing time.
You may contact the Financial Aid Office at (908) 835-2396 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
