Verification Documents

Verification is the process used to confirm that the data reported on your FAFSA is accurate. During verification, the college financial aid administrator will request one of the forms listed below. Please only submit one of these forms if they are requested of you through myWofford.

Special Circumstances

Have you or your family experienced special circumstances since completing the FAFSA?

Occasionally, a student and/or family may experience a shift in the household income that is not reflected on the upcoming Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Examples include but are not limited to unemployment, change in marital status, reduction in income, hefty medical expenses not covered by insurance, etc.

If you believe this may pertain to you, please review, complete and submit our 2023-2024 Special Circumstances Worksheet. As you can see from this form, additional documentation is required for the reevaluation of your financial aid eligibility as well.

Upon receipt of documentation, our office should be able to process and communicate the results with you within three weeks. If additional information is needed or incomplete, our office will reach out via email.

Should you have questions about our process, please contact us or call 864-597-4160.

State Residency Forms

Residency forms are used to verify that an in-state student meets the SC residency requirement in order to receive state grants and scholarships.

Citizenship Verification Form for State

This form is used to verify citizenship for a student receiving a SC State Scholarship when a FAFSA has not been completed.

Unusual Circumstances

Federal regulations permit the college to override a student's dependency status for federal financial aid purposes if extenuating circumstances exist and can be documented. Examples of such extenuating circumstances are the death of a parent, parent abandonment or abuse. This determination is made on a case-by-case basis.

Note: All documentation must be submitted at the same time in order for it to be evaluated. Once all documentation has been submitted, please allow up to three weeks for final determination, notification of status and possible financial aid updates.

The following conditions are NOT considered unusual circumstances:

  • Parents refuse to contribute to the student’s education.
  • Parents will not provide information for the FAFSA or verification.
  • Parents do not claim the student as a dependent for income tax purposes.
  • Student demonstrates total self-sufficiency.
