If you've been selected for verification...
If you've been selected for verification, it means that we are required to compare your FAFSA data to your federal tax data and other resources. Your Student Aid Report will tell you if you've been selected for verification. PCC will request documents from you - these will show up as requirements in your Financial Aid Dashboard. Follow the steps above to satisfy these requirements. Satisfy requirements by the date in the financial aid timeline or your financial aid award will be subject to delay. After you have satisfied all requirements, the PCC Financial Aid Office will make any necessary corrections to your FAFSA and notify you of your financial aid eligibility in your PCC email.
