What Happens if I am Selected for Verification?

The Financial Aid Office will verify the accuracy of all applications of students selected by the Department of Education or by the Financial Aid Office at Lackawanna College. Federal aid cannot be finalized until all required documentation is received and eligibility is determined.  Students selected for verification will be sent a letter by the Financial Aid Office stating what documentation is required from the student and/or parent(s).  All required documentation must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office within 15 days.      

The college continues to send letters (up to 4 per semester) until the all documentation has been received by the Financial Aid Office.   Failure to provide documentation within that time period may result in cancellation of federal and/or institutional awards. After a review of this information, a student’s change in eligibility may require a change in a student’s award(s). Students will be notified in a revised award letter of any changes. Awards may also be revised due to a change in the student’s enrollment status, housing status, and receipt of outside sources of aid. In determining a student’s eligibility, the Financial Aid Office is governed by federal, state and institutional regulations which may limit the type and amount of aid a student can receive.
How do I Retrieve Tax Transcripts?
  • To obtain an IRS tax return transcript, go to IRS - Get Transcript  or call 1-800-908-9946. Make sure to request the “IRS tax return transcript”. 
  • You can also retrieve your financial information by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool that is part of FAFSA on the Web. Go to, log in to the student’s FAFSA record, select “Make FAFSA Corrections”, select the Financial Information section and follow the instructions. Once the data has been successfully transferred, sign and resubmit your FAFSA.
