Tax Return Transcript or IRS Data Retrieval Tool
A Tax Return Transcript will be requested for the verification process. This is not a copy of a filed tax return. This can be submitted by using the IRS Data Retrieval tool on the FAFSA or ordering a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS (www.irs.gov or 800.908.9946).
Proof of Citizenship
Acceptable documents include copies of passport, certificate of naturalization or citizenship, or birth certificate.
Documents need to be either shown in person to the Financial Aid office at the Klamath Falls campus or shown to Abbie Allen at the Wilsonville campus. If this is not an option, students will need to have a copy notarized before submitting the document to the Financial Aid office.
Verify Bachelor’s Degree
This request is to verify if a student’s FAFSA was correct in stating that the student has a previous bachelor’s degree. If a student does have a bachelor’s degree, he or she will need to confirm this by calling or emailing the Financial Aid office. No additional documents need to be submitted.
If the student does not have a bachelor’s degree, it means a question was answered incorrectly on the FAFSA. The student will need to correct the error and then let the Financial Aid office know the error was corrected.
