How to Apply for Financial Aid

Verification Process

We recommend that all the records and other materials used to complete the FAFSA are saved because the student may need to provide a copy of this information to the Department of Student Financial Aid.  If selected for verification, a copy of your, your spouse's (if applicable), and your parents' (if considered to be a dependent student) U.S. IRS Income Tax Return Transcripts, W-2 forms, and/or other information must be submitted to our department.  By signing the FAFSA, you have agreed, if asked, to provide information that will verify the accuracy of your completed form.

If this information is not provided, the student will not receive financial aid.  If a student is awarded and receives financial aid based on incorrect information, the student will have to pay it back.

You may request a copy of Tarleton State University's Verification Policy from the Tarleton State University Student Financial Aid Office.
