Verification Process

Reminder emails are sent to the students’ Southwest Tennessee email address and the email address listed on their FAFSA. Follow-up robo-calls and student portal messages are then sent to students who are still missing required documentation. The MySouthwest student portal also lists documents that have been received and that are outstanding. The most common missing documents from students are parent tax return transcripts, verification worksheets, proof of their parent’s marital status, and official copies of their high school transcripts.
