All forms with the proper signatures can be scanned and emailed to the Whitworth Financial Aid Office. For security purposes, we recommend that you send documents via our Proofpoint encryption process, which sends the document(s) to a secure portal. To use this method, please read the Proofpoint directions.
If your FAFSA application has been selected by the Federal Student Aid Processor for a review process called verification, please be aware of the following. During the verification process, Whitworth will compare the data on your FAFSA with your 2015 signed IRS tax returns or your federal tax return transcripts and the verification form available below. Verification must be completed within 60 days from the start of the term to maintain eligibility for work-study, and must be completed no later than 120 days after the last date of enrollment or by Sept. 29 following the end of the academic year, whichever is earliest, or you will lose financial aid eligibility. Under the financial aid program rules (34 CFR, Part 668), we must review the requested information.
