Forms and Documentation Submissions Guidelines

The Financial Aid Office’s primary means of communicating important information to students is through their Brightspace email account. Email accounts are established upon acceptance to the College.

  • Students will be responsible for checking their student email on a frequent and consistent basis to remain informed of OCtech communications, as certain communications may be time sensitive.
  • In addition, students are expected to follow up on any request for information and/or documentation required for processing their financial aid via their Self Service Account.
  • Students are now able to complete, submit, and upload the required forms and additional requested documentation via Self Service.
  • Include student’s name and Student ID on all documents.
  • Please note, until we have received all requested document(s), the Office of Financial is unable to offer you a financial aid award.

Submitting Tax Information for Verification

If you are selected for verification, it is highly recommended that you use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) under the financial information section of the FAFSA. However, if you are not able to use the IRS DRT, you may submit a copy of your IRS tax return transcript or federal tax return. When submitting your IRS tax return transcript or federal tax return, you must also submit copies of all of your tax return schedules (ex. schedule A, B, C, D, E, F, H, J, R, SE and/or 8812) along with other verification forms requested. If submitting a federal tax return, a handwritten signature on the tax return is required.
