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 will be required to either use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool within the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov or submit an IRS Tax Transcript. If the student is a dependent student, the tax data of the student's parents will also be required. Additional documentation may be required such as information regarding household size, assets, and the number of family members in college.
Below is the current Verification Worksheet, along with instructions to request an IRS Tax Transcript.

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.
