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 in your Financial Aid Dashboard. Follow the steps above to submit your documents. Submit all documents by the date in the financial aid timeline or your award could be delayed. After you have submitted all documents, 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.
