Forms for 2016-2017

Depending on your situation, you may need to submit additional information to the Financial Aid Office. Because each student's situation is different, we do not know in advance exactly which documents are needed from each person. You will be notified by mail if you need to submit additional information. You can also track the progress of your file using your Student Self Service account.

Attention: Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed to view the following forms. The academic year for the School of Education begins in the summer and ends with the May mini-session of the spring semester.

2016-2017 Application Forms


Verification is a process used to check the accuracy of certain information entered on the FAFSA and to resolve any errors. Some students are selected by the Department of Education and some are selected by the School of Education. Selected students will need to provide additional documentation to the Financial Aid Office before we can finalize and disburse federal financial aid.

If you are selected for verification, you will need to complete and submit a verification worksheet.  We ask that students and parents use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA to provide income information from your federal tax return.  If you are not able to use the Data Retrieval Tool, you must submit an official IRS transcript of your federal income tax return, which you can obtain from the IRS by calling 1-800-908-9946 or visiting

Once all documents have been received, our office will review the data and compare it to the information on your FAFSA. Our office will make corrections (if necessary) and transmit them to the federal processor. You will receive an updated Student Aid Report (SAR) if corrections are required. If the corrections impact your federal aid award, we will notify you by email or letter.

Verification may take several weeks to complete, so we ask that all students supply the requested materials as soon as possible.

If your documents have not been turned in by April 30, 2016 your federal aid will be cancelled.

Your financial aid will not be disbursed until the verification process is complete. Students can track the completion of verification documents on the "To Do List" tab on Net Partner in SIS at
