Additional Verifiable Items for Certian Applicants 2012-2013


The verification process has undergone significant changes for 2012-13. One of the changes from previous years is the federal requirement to request new or additional documentation than in past years. For 2012-13, certain applicants may be required to submit additional documentation to the school if any of the following was reported on the 2012-13 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA):

Child Support Paid During 2011

Who Must Provide Documentation?
Students/spouses who reported they paid child support in 2011 (Question #43b) and/or parents of dependent students who reported they paid child support (Question #91b) on the 2012-13 FAFSA and were selected for verification are required to verify the reported child support payments made in 2011.

What Documentation Should I Submit?
Students/spouses who reported child support payments in 2011 on the 2012-13 FAFSA should complete and submit the 2012-13 Child Support Paid-Student form available in the SFS Resources Center. The student/spouse should only report child support paid in 2011 for children not included in their household.
 
Parents of dependent students who reported child support payments in 2011 on the 2012-13 FAFSA should complete and submit the 2012-13 Child Support Paid-Parent form available in the SFS Resources Center. Parents should only report child support paid in 2011 for children not included in their household.

In some circumstances, Student Financial Services (SFS) may require students and/or parents to submit copies of checks or bank statements to clarify reported payments. If such documentation is required, SFS will contact the student or parent to request additional documentation.

What if I Did Not Pay Child Support?
If you or your parent/spouse did not pay child support during 2011 you are not required to submit documentation. However, if you or your parent/spouse incorrectly reported child support paid on the 2012-13 FAFSA, the Child Support Paid forms allow you to indicate child support payments were not made in 2011.

Recipients of Food Stamps during 2010 or 2011

Parents of dependent students who answered ‘Yes’ to Question #76 or independent students who answered ‘Yes’ to Question #96 on the 2012-13 FAFSA and were selected for verification are required to certify receipt of food stamps on the 2012-13 Verification Worksheet. No other documentation is needed for most applicants.

Who Must Provide Documentation?
SFS will notify students via their LOOP mail and OASIS portal if they are required to submit documentation in addition to the Verification Worksheet. DO NOT submit official agency documentation unless you are specifically instructed to submit these documents.

What if I Did Not Receive Food Stamps?
If you or your parent/spouse did not receive food stamps during 2010 or 2011 you are not required to submit documentation. However, if you or your parent/spouse incorrectly reported receipt of food stamps on the 2012-13 FAFSA, you must make a correction to your Student Aid Report (SAR). Corrections can be made online at www.fafsa.gov using your Federal PIN.
