Any time you apply for financial aid your file may be selected by the Department of Education for a process called verification. Verification means that San Jac must confirm the accuracy of the information you provided on your FAFSA. This must be completed before any further work can be done with your financial aid award. We may need a tax return transcript from the IRS or other official documents to complete the process. If we send you an email requesting documents, be sure to respond promptly. Many of the San Jac forms are available for download from our web site at www.sanjac.edu/apply-register/paying-college/financial-aid/forms. Please note, if you are submitting documents during peak periods (such as registration) verification processing time on your file may take 2-3 weeks.
