Verification Suspended for V1 & V5 Verification Tracking Groups for Award Year 2022-2023

Recent Federal Student Aid guidance has suspended award year 2022-2023 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.

Document Submission Platforms:

Campus Logic Student Forms:

The Office of Financial Aid is now using a new online platform called Student Forms for students to securely submit all 2022-2023 Verification and most other FAFSA related documentation. Student Forms provides a single secure portal for all FAFSA related document submission making submission faster and easier.

Student Forms is accessible using your CUNYfirst login username and password. Learn more about Student Forms with the CUNY Student Forms FAQ.

Filenet Document Submission:

Under extenuating circumstances, we will allow students to submit certain documentation through File net. Some examples include: unable to provide parent signature on FAFSA form, direct loan status change request forms, and parent PLUS loan forms. Please speak to a financial aid counselor if you are unable to upload your documentation through Student Forms.

For more information on how to upload forms through Filenet please visit here.

SAP Appeals

Please check your CunyFirst “To Do” list to complete your SAP appeal. You will need to file your appeal using the CUNY Student Forms portal. For first time users of CUNY Financial Aid Student Forms, you will be required to complete the registration process and confirm your personal identifying information reported on your FAFSA before you can access the portal. All questions pertaining to SAP appeals must be sent to Studentaffairs@citytech.cuny.edu

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 2022-2023 Award Year:

We have now started processing documentation for the 2022-2023 award year. Please check your To Do list in CunyFirst and submit the necessary documentation.

Emails:

The office is responding to emails however due to a large volume of emails, we will respond to emails within 10 business days. 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.

Virtual FA (Zoom) Services continue to be our main and preferred method for providing services at this time. Limited appointments are available, so we highly encourage you to visit us on ZOOM during virtual service hours.

Disclaimers:

*** All documents must be uploaded by using Student Forms. Any documents sent by mail, email, or fax will not be reviewed.***

*** Based on the number of students waiting for services on a given day we may close our services earlier than the announced service hours.***
