Fin Aid verification

Financial Aid Verification

Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for review by the U.S. Department of Education in a process called “Verification”. This means St. Francis College must compare the information from your FAFSA, your 2018 Federal tax transcript, verification worksheet, and other financial documents.

If there are differences between your FAFSA information and your financial documents, additional information may be requested and/or corrections will be processed. The law says that we have the right to ask you for this information and resolve any conflicts before awarding Federal financial aid (34 CFR, Part 668). You must provide St, Francis College with all the requested applicable documents. Additional required “Documents/Forms” are located on our webpage.  Federal aid cannot be disbursed to your account until the verification process has been completed.

Unusual Enrollment History Flag:
The U.S. Department of Education has added the Unusual Enrollment History Flag to the information received by the college. This flag indicates whether students have an unusual enrollment history (transferring to multiple colleges) in regard to the receipt of Federal Pell Grant (Pell Grant) funds, and requires follow-up by the college to review the student's enrollment patterns.

Submitting Documentation:
Verification documents may be submitted via . To access the portal you will first need to register for an account. Once you have done so, you can then use your SFC credentials to log in. When registering for the first time, a student will need the following- student ID number, first and last name, date of birth, and social security number. This information must precisely match the information that the student provided on their FAFSA application. If a student is unable to create an account or log in, it may be helpful to pull up the FAFSA application and see what was submitted for the above required items. 

If a student has outstanding items that need to be resolved, the documents will be listed as tasks. Please upload all required documents, as a student’s verification will not be fully reviewed until all documents are submitted. Please allow 3-5 business days for review. Once verification has been completed, the student will receive an email via their SFC email notifying them that their aid offer is ready for review.

Important Reminder:
Federal verification for the 2020-2021 academic year requires 2018 income tax information.
