Centre Aid Form


One of every five students who files the FAFSA is selected for review in a process called verification. A comment will appear on the front page of your FAFSA Submission Summary if you have been selected for verification.

Aid applicants who are selected for verification must provide additional documentation to Centre before they can receive a financial aid award. Specifically, students selected for verification must either use the IRS Data Exchange to complete their FAFSA or mail us their 2022 IRS Tax Return Transcript. The Verification Worksheet must be completed and signed by the student and at least one parent (2 pages). This form should be returned to Centre’s Financial Aid Office when you have completed it. Both the parent and independent (on the FAFSA) students are required to submit proof of non-filing from the IRS if a 2022 federal tax return was not filed. See verification worksheet for instructions.

The verification worksheet will be available December 2023. 

Additional Verification Instructions

Either IRS Data Exchange, Tax Return Transcript, or a signed copy of your 2022 federal tax return including all schedules and W-2's. The FAFSA uses prior-prior tax information. For example, the 2024-2025 FAFSA uses 2022 tax information.
