Verification Documents

If the Department of Education selects you for verification, you will have to provide some additional information to MCLA in order to be reviewed and offered any financial aid. You may be asked to verify the accuracy of your information by providing documents such as an IRS Tax Return Transcript.

Financial Aid will notify you if you are selected for verification and tell you what documents are required. Print, complete, mail or fax (413-662-5105) requested forms to the Financial Aid Office. If you have any questions on what forms are needed or what information you need, please contact Financial Aid at 413-662-5219 or
