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.
You may access and download Verification documents for the 2013-2014 academic year at the following web page. . .
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.
You will need to download some of the forms/documents on this web site.
