Verification Suspended for V1 & V5 Verification Tracking Groups for Award Year 2021-2022

Recent Federal Student Aid guidance has suspended award year 2021-2022 Verification for V1 & V5 Tracking Groups. Effective immediately, institutions are no longer required to verify income information, taxes paid, household size, and number in college.

If you are selected for Verification V1 or V5, do not submit any documents or information to us. Outstanding Checklist items associated with V1 and V5 Verification (income information, taxes paid, household size, and number in college) will be waived automatically.

If you are selected for V5 verification, you are still required to provide documentation for the identity portion of the V5 worksheet.

If you have already submitted your Verification documents (V1 or V5), we will review them and follow-up with you if we have any questions. Do not submit additional documents unless we contact you.

Uploading Documentation:

We have two platforms to submit your documentation (FileNet and Dynamic Forms). If you are unable to upload your documentation through Filenet you may use Dynamic Forms as an alternative.

Filenet Document Submission

Please submit all documentation using the following instructions. Here are the instructions.

Dynamic Forms Document Submission

Students who are submitting documentation through Dynamic Forms, please submit it through the Dynamic Forms platform.

Document Review and Processing Time:

The review of documentation and processing may take 6-8 weeks. Once you submit your documentation, please allow at least 4 weeks for your documentation to be marked "Received" in CUNYFirst and then allow another 2-3 weeks for processing.

Processing of Documentation for the 2021-2022 Award Year:

We have now started processing documentation for the 2021-2022 award year. Please check your To Do list in CunyFirst and submit the necessary documentation. The 2021-2022 forms for Dynamic Forms is located here and the 2021-2022 forms for Filenet submission is located here.

Emails:

The office is responding to emails however due to a large volume of emails, we will respond to emails within 3 weeks. We thank you for your patience and would like for you to keep checking our website often for changes in processing time and email reply time. The information will change based on the volume of documents and emails.
