General Instructions For Completing Verification
The Federal Government determines and selects certain FAFSA Applications for a process called verification. If a student is selected for verification they should do one of the following:
• Log into www.fafsa.ed.gov and use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.
Please Note: The Internal Revenue Service has suspended the use of the Data Retrieval Tool until the 2018/2019 FAFSA Season.
• Go to https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript and request a copy of you/and/or your parent(s) Tax Return Transcript.
Please do not send a Tax Return Transcript if we do not request it.
2017-18 New Verification Process
The U.S. Department of Education Central Processing System selects the applications that are to be verified. For 2017-2018 RBC’s Office of Financial Aid has contracted with Inceptia to help you and your family complete the verification of your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Inceptia will be contacting you directly to request the data needed to complete the required verification if you are selected. If selected for verification, you’ll receive an email from Verification Gateway. Log into https://www.verificationgateway.org/rbc2018 to start the process.
Federal Funds cannot be disbursed to a student until this verification process has been completed. Once you have completed the process, Inceptia will then produce the required documents and forward them to the RBC Office of Financial Aid for processing.
RBC’s Office of Financial Aid also may be requesting other documents from you. You will need to send those documents and the appropriate forms directly to the RBC Office of Financial Aid. We will let you know if any other forms and/or documents are required.BC
