The Financial Aid Office now offers electronic forms!​

If selected for verification, students are strongly encouraged to complete the required forms electronically (if available) for easier tracking and faster processing of their Financial Aid.
If you successfully submit an electronic form with an electronic signature, please do not submit a copy of the same form at a Financial Aid Office, via fax or email.


Verification is a process required by the US Department of Education to confirm the information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). When you are selected for verification, Broward College requires certain documents to compare your FAFSA data with your financial and family information. If differences arise your financial aid awards will be delayed until all discrepancies are resolved.          

Please view FATV for more information on verification.

Please Note: You should refer to your myBC (Financial Aid Status) to determine if you were selected for verification and which document(s) you are required to submit.


NOTE: The IRS Tax Transcript is now available for use. However, if you are selected for Verification, and you are unable to obtain a Tax Transcript, have proof that you cannot obtain a tax transcript, Broward College will accept the IRS Paper 1040 Tax Return copy. Please note that to accept the copy the form must be signed. If unsigned, the filer (or at least one of the filers of a joint return) must sign it or the tax preparer must give a name and SSN, EIN, or PTIN.
