If eligible for aid and awarded, you will receive a message to check the Zone for your financial aid offer.

You will have to “ACCEPT” your offer online prior to any funds being disbursed.

Untaxed Income Certification Form - Independent/Dependent

Certain applicants will be required to verify the untaxed inome information they provided on the CA Dream Act application. If the Financial Aid Office determines that the amounts provided and/or verified do not appear to provide sufficient financial support for the number of household members reported, the applicant and spouse/parents must explain how the family was financially supported during the 2017 calendar year.

If you were selected for this verification, if there are questions about untaxed income, or we need your certification that you are not required to file federal taxes, you will be required to complete this form. You may be required to provide proof from the IRS that you were not required to file taxes.
