Federal Verification Procedures 2023-2024

To be distributed to students selected for federal verification

Your Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) has been selected for federal verification. This means that you must provide additional information to the Director of Financial Aid in order for us to continue processing any federal financial aid for you. You must submit the required information in a timely manner. Failure to provide this information will make it impossible for you to receive federal financial aid. Please read the following procedures very carefully. Please feel free to contact the Director of Financial Aid, if you have any questions.

  1. Read the Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR)

  2. Complete the enclosed verification worksheet and submit all documentation requested.

  3. If the verification worksheet requires income verification, you must obtain an IRS Tax Return Transcript for any returns filed by yourself and/or your parents. (If you filed your FAFSA using FAFSA on the Web and you used the IRS Data Retrieval tool you may not need to provide the IRS Tax Return Transcript).

  4. If your ISIR was flagged with Verification Tracking Group V4 or V5, you must attach documentation of high school completion or the equivalent. Additionally, you must appear in person with your government issued photo ID, at Women’s Institute of Torah Seminary & College to complete Section F: Documentation of Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose.

  5. You will be notified if additional documentation is required.


After all documentation is received, the financial aid office will review it. If there is any inconsistent information, you will be notified by the financial aid office via telephone or email to explain the inconsistency and/or resolve it with further documentation.  


If, based on information you provide, it becomes necessary to make corrections to your ISIR (Institutional Student Information Report) the corrections can be made to your FAFSA online.   Corrections must be submitted by September 14, 2024.  All verification documentation must be in by September 21, 2024 at the latest, or 120 days from the last date of your attendance, whichever is earlier. We urge you to complete and submit all verification paperwork as soon as possible. If you provide the required verification documentation before the verification deadline, but after September 14, 2024 and a correction is needed, you will not be able to receive your awards.

If while reviewing your ISIR you notice any incorrect information please contact the Director of Financial Aid, for guidance. You will be asked to correct the information either online on your FAFSA, or on the ISIR itself where you will need to sign next to the corrected information. One of your parents may have to sign as well if you are a dependent student.
