Verification is the process of making sure the information reported on the student's FAFSA is accurate and complete. Students may be randomly selected for verification, or may have to resolve conflicting information that has been flagged on the application. If an application is selected for verification, the applicant will be required to provide additional documentation within specific deadlines. Failure to meet these deadlines may result in the denial of financial aid.
Students can check their financial aid status from the LACCD Portal and complete the verification process or download and upload the appropriate forms at the Financial Aid Portal (https://lacitycollege.studentforms.com).
The Financial Aid Office may request additional documentation based on the information submitted on your financial aid application such as:
- Federal tax forms or IRS transcripts, wages and income transcripts or W2 forms, and/or proof of non-filing
- Verification of untaxed income and benefits
- Verification Worksheet
- Other documents as needed to verify your application or situation
- Deadline to submit verification documents is 120 days after last date of enrollment or September 1st 2023 for 2022-2023 aid year
Verification requirements apply to all federal aid programs and the state Cal Grant program.
