Outside Scholarship Certification Forms - The U.S. Department of Education’s Privacy and Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) guidance is now indicating colleges and universities may not share student FAFSA data (Expected Family Contribution (EFC), demonstrated financial need, award eligibility, award amounts and financial aid award letters and notifications) with an outside scholarship organization. Furthermore, the PTAC guidance indicates colleges and universities may not share student FAFSA data, even if the student signs a waiver. Finally, the PTAC has said the student may share their own FAFSA data. The student should contact the scholarship organization directly to submit the requested data on the scholarship certification form.
