Federal Verification

The Federal Process selects a number of FAFSA applications for a process called Federal Verification. This process is used to determine that the information provided on the FAFSA is accurate. The Financial Office is mandated to complete these reviews to be in accordance with Federal guidelines.

In April, the Financial Aid Office will begin requesting, from selected students, the documentation needed to complete the verification review. A student must respond to this request immediately to ensure timely processing and disbursement of his/her financial aid. No aid payments will be made nor will loans be processed until the Verification process is completed. If the required information or other steps in the Verification process are not completed according to the establishment schedule, all federal financial aid for the academic year will be cancelled.
