Students who apply for Federal Financial Aid may be selected for a process called verification and must submit documents to confirm the information reported on the FAFSA is accurate. Students should respond quickly to any request for information from Student Financial Services and be certain that their name and COTC seven digit ID number is clearly printed on all documents. Students will be sent an email requesting documents and directing them to download, complete and submit the required forms. (If a student does not have an email address on file, a paper letter will be mailed listing the required documents.)
At COTC, appeal processes are in place for students to provide information and appeal things like dependency status and/or income reported on the FAFSA. It’s important to talk with a Student Financial Services staff member to understand what form is needed, when and what appeal processes entail.
When changes are needed related to paying for college, documentation is almost always required. Documentation or forms are needed to ensure proper/regulatory record-keeping.
We are here to help you with questions or concerns you may have related to paying for college. We especially want to ensure if you have information to complete, you understand which form(s) to submit, when and how.
