In order to apply for financial aid each student must complete the FAFSA each year.

Gather the information required to complete the FAFSA:

  • Your social security number and your parent’s social security numbers if you are a dependent.
  • Federal tax returns for two years prior to the academic year you are applying, including W2 information, for yourself, spouse if you are married, and for your parents if you are dependent.


In completing the FAFSA, you (and your parents, if required) will sign the application using an FSA ID. If you don’t have a FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to the Federal Student Aid website. You will create a username and password. You will enter your email address, name, date of birth, Social Security number, contact information, and challenge questions and answers.

  1. Enter all the necessary information. You may use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to input tax information.

Follow up on your FAFSA:

When your application is processed you will receive a SAR (Student Aid Report) either by email or mail. You should review your SAR for any necessary corrections or updates.

  1. Log on to BannerWeb to check your financial aid status.
  2. If you have been selected for Verification, you will need to provide additional documents either to the financial aid office or through Verification Gateway (VG) from Inceptia, an online portal to guide students and parents through verification before financial aid can be awarded.
  3. If your FAFSA application is selected for verification by the U.S Department of Education, you will receive an email from, or a postcard from Inceptia, containing Chattahoochee Technical College’s unique website link to start the verification process.

We encourage you to begin the verification process within 7 days of receiving notification from Verification Gateway to ensure you receive your financial aid in time for payments. Failure to complete the verification process could result in the delay or denial of your financial aid.
