Verification

The US Department of Education requires that MacMurray College verify the accuracy of the applications of selected new and continuing financial aid recipients.

If a student's application is selected for verification, the student and/or parents must submit either a signed copy of their federal tax return or a tax return transcript from the IRS to verify the tax data submitted on the FAFSA. Additional information is required on the worksheet such as household size and the number of family members in college. Students and parents who did not file federal taxes will be required to complete a non-tax filer statement and submit any W-2s as applicable.

If corrections are necessary due to the verification process, awards may be revised and eligibility recalculated. Please contact our office with any questions or for assistance.

Note: No financial aid can be disbursed to the student until all requested documents necessary for verification are submitted and reviewed.

The IRS and Department of Education have announced that the IRS Data Retrieval Tool is expected to be unavailable until the 2018-2019 FAFSA application cycle. For more information, please read the official press release on the US Department of Education's website.
