FAQs Related to Forms
No, it is not recommended. To prevent delays in processing, we recommend that you create one file for each required document. For example, if we are requesting Verification of Student and Parent Tax information, submitting all of these documents as one file may cause delays. The proper way to address this is to have one PDF, .jpg, .png, .doc, or .docx file for the parent tax documents and another separate PDF, .jpg, .png, .doc, or .docx file for the student tax documents.
For more information regarding what documents you will need to satisfy verification requirements, please visit our Verification page.
The Document & File Upload service does not replace our existing methods of document submission. Students can still fax, mail or drop off documents to our office. The privacy of student information is important to our office; hence, we want to offer students as many secure options for document submission as possible.
The Document & File Upload offers students the convenience of safely and securely uploading documents to our office for review & processing. Use this link if you don’t see the form to complete on the original Upload page.

Once you submit your uploaded files, your documents will be processed by our Data Entry team (same process as fax, mail or drop off documents). Upon an initial review of your files, we will remove successfully completed documents from your To-Do List or mark the item as “Received.”
Successfully submitted documents will clear from your To-Do list within 10 business days. Note: The verification process can take approximately 8-10 weeks to complete.
If it has been more than 10 business days and your uploaded item has still not cleared from your To-Do List, it is possible that there might have been an error while reviewing your documents. After you have uploaded your documents, please be sure to monitor your Knights email account as well as your myUCF To-Do List. Our office will send you an email notifying you of errors in uploaded files.
