2019-2020 Verification Worksheet
*Your application was selected for review in a process called “Verification”. Verification is a process governed by Federal and/or State regulations and is used to ensure that the information applicants
report on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate. In this process, County College of Morris will compare information from your 2018-19 FAFSA with this form, and copies
of 2017 IRS Federal Income Tax Return Transcripts, W-2’s from all employers and other additional documents requested. Information retrieved using the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Data
Retrieval Process and not subsequently changed, is considered acceptable documentation for IRS-related information and your Federal Tax Return Transcript will not be required.
The law requires us to ask for this information before awarding Federal aid. If there are differences between your application information and your financial documents, County College of Morris will
need to make corrections. Additionally, I understand that if registered for courses not applicable to my current major, I am responsible for payment. If you do not complete this form or submit all of the
required documents requested, we will not be able to complete the processing of your financial aid. Feel free to contact the financial aid office at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have any questions. Please read
