Your 2020-2021 FAFSA was selected for review in a process known as verification. Federal law states that the Financial Aid Office
has the right to confirm the information that was submitted before offering and/or disbursing federal student aid. We will compare the
information reported on the FAFSA for you and your spouse (if married) with the information provided on this worksheet and any
required documentation. PLEASE NOTE Your eligibility for financial aid cannot be determined until the verification process is
complete.
INSTRUCTIONS: Complete this worksheet using blue or black ink, attach any required documentation, sign, and submit the
completed package to the WCC Financial Aid Office.
**If you were married on the day you submitted your FAFSA, you are required to include information for your spouse. If there are any
discrepancies between the information reported on the FAFSA and the documents submitted to our office, your signature on this
form authorizes our office to make the appropriate corrections to your FAFSA.
Additional information may be needed to complete your file. If you have any questions about the verification process, please contact the
Financial Aid Office as soon as possible to avoid a delay in processing your request for financial aid.

Wayne Community College, such as admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc. should be addressed directly to Wayne Community College and not the Commission’s office.
IMPORTANT: If you were married on the day you submitted the FAFSA, you must answer all tax and income questions for you

The best way to verify income is by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) that is part of the online FAFSA at
studentaid.gov. In most cases, no further documentation is needed to verify 2018 income information that was transferred into the
student’s FAFSA using the IRS DRT if that information was not changed.
