What is Verification?
The Financial Aid Office may need to request certain types of documentation from you for a process called verification.
Every year, approximately 30 percent of our applicants are selected by the US Department of Education for its verification process. Our office will communicate with students primarily through email and updates in eWOLF if documentation is needed. Please check both regularly to see any requests for documentation.
All documentation is kept strictly confidential and only financial aid personnel have access to this information once it has been submitted. When there is any information that our office needs to complete the review of your file, we will notify you through your Colorado Community College System (CCCS) email account or through eWOLF.
Visit our Financial Aid Forms page for a list of financial aid documentation.
Please note: Incomplete documents will result in an incomplete file. It is strongly recommended that students keep copies of all forms submitted to the Financial Aid Office as well as follow up on the processing of these documents.
As a student, you are protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). This means that personally identifiable information is protected by the school. This also means that you will need to provide written authorization in order for anyone, other than you, to have access to your educational records. Complete this form to authorize access to your educational records.
