Each year the Department of Education randomly selects a percentage of FAFSAs for a process known as "Verification". This means that the College must collect specific documents from the student/family to confirm the accuracy of the information reported on the FAFSA. If you are selected, it will be listed on your SAR (Student Aid Report) which is emailed to you after filing the FAFSA. You will also be notified by the Office of Financial Aid via a missing information letter containing further instructions. Failure to submit the requested documentation by the advertised deadline will disqualify the student from receiving financial aid.   

Please note that if you are asked to submit a Tax Return Transcript, you must obtain it through the IRS directly.  You can do so online here or by calling 1-800-908-9946.

All ORIGINAL verification documents must be submit either in person or mailed to:

New York School of Interior Design
Office of Financial Aid
170 East 70th Street
New York, NY 10021

We will not accept copies of documents sent via e-mail or fax.
