Because students make errors on the FAFSA, the U.S Department of Education (USDE)
has established a process for verifying the information submitted on the FAFSA and
empowering colleges and universities to make corrections on a FAFSA. This process
is called Verification. Verification if the USDE's means of testing accuracy of the
information submitted on FAFSAs and by doing so ensuring the integrity of the student financial aid programs. Schools
are authorized to collect certain documentation, for review, in order to complete
this process. If the information submitted conflicts with the information provided
on a FAFSA schools are authorized, and obligated, to make a correction to the FAFSA
before financial aid eligibility can be accurately determined and funds awarded.
If you are selected for Verification, but do not complete the process, no financial
aid funds, including loans, will be credited to your student account.
