Verification Process

Some student aid applicants are selected by the federal government for a process called Verification. For these students, the Financial Aid office is required to review the accuracy of the data that was provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To do this, typically all federal tax transcripts that were used to complete the FAFSA are required, as well as additional worksheets that allow us to simply double-check the accuracy of the aid application. If items are found to be incorrect, our office sends the correct information to the federal government so that the student's financial aid eligibility can be properly calculated.

Timely submission of any additional documents that are requested by the Financial Aid office is extremely important. All documents that are submitted should have the student's name and IWU ID number clearly visible on the form. All tax returns that are submitted need to be federal, not state, and the returns need to be signed and dated by at least one individual whose information is reported thereon. All verification documents, with the exception of citizenship verification, may be faxed to the Financial Aid office at 765-677-2809. We appreciate your attention to timeliness with such requests.
