New Verification Documentation Guidelines

The Department of Education has released new guidance related to verification requirements to allow selected students alternative options.

  1. If requested to submit tax information, a signed copy of the student and/or parent (whichever is asked for) tax return will satisfy the requirement. The IRS Data Retrieval (DRT) tool remains in operation. The IRS tax transcript will also still satisfy this request.
  2. If the IRS “verification of non-filing” is required then students may complete the Alamo Colleges “Verification of Non-Filing” form. Extension filers may also use the VONF form described. The VNF from the IRS will also still satisfy this request.
