Date: Friday, February 7, 2014
Time: 3 – 4 p.m.

Description: One out of every three FAFSA applications processed by the U.S. Department of Education and received by the CPCC Financial Aid Office are randomly selected for review in a process called “verification.” Applicants selected for verification are required to submit documents needed in confirming the accuracy of information provided on the FAFSA. This workshop is designed to allow students to ask questions related to the steps in the verification process and requested documents needed to complete their financial aid file. Join a financial aid advisor as they go through the verification process and answer any questions.
