On July 13, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education announced temporary verification changes for the 2021-2022 Academic Year. BRCTC is no longer required to verify certain financial and household information. Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose and High School Completion Status is still required for the 2021-2022 Academic Year.
Verification is a review process in which the BRCTC Financial Aid Office determines the accuracy of various data elements reported by students on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The US Department of Education selects approximately 30% of all aid applicants for verification.
Not everyone is selected for verification, but some students are selected every year. To learn more about verification, please click on the appropriate school year to find out more information regarding how to know if you are selected for verification and how to complete the verification process.
