Identity and Statement of Educational Purpose

Verification is a process required by the college when a student is selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education.  Based on verification requirements, you may be required to complete and submit an Identity and Statement of Educational Purpose form.  If required, the form must be completed before your financial aid can be processed. This form is used to verify a student’s identity and to verify the student understands that federal student financial assistance must be used for educational purposes and to pay for the cost of attending Jefferson State Community College.

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closing of all campus locations, the Department of Education has allowed us to temporarily accept scanned copies and/or uploaded photos of this form via email.  You may also submit an uploaded copy of your government-issued photo identification via email.  We will temporarily accept government-issued photo identification that has expired after March 1, 2020.  Please send documents to finaid@jeffersonstate.edu.
