Verification Documents

If the Department of Education selects you for verification after you complete your FAFSA, 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 certain documents, such as an IRS Tax Return Transcript.

We will notify you if you are selected for verification and tell you what documents are required by sending you a Missing Items Letter. For new or prospective students, the Missing Items Letter will be mailed to your address on file. For returning students, the Missing Item Letter will be sent to your MCLA email address. Once all the required documents have been provided to Financial Aid, we can review your and prepare your package.

If you have been selected for verification and have any questions on what forms are needed or what information you need, please contact Financial Aid at 413-662-5219 or
