A student’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) may be selected by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) for a process called “verification” whereby the institution will be required to gather additional information from the student related to their application for federal student aid. Students are reminded to provide truthful and accurate information. Students who are selected for verification will be contacted by the Financial Services Office and given a verification worksheet that includes specific requirements, deadlines, and consequences of non‐compliance related to their verification group. To complete the verification and remain eligible for Financial Aid, the student must submit the verification worksheet as well as tax/income information as directed by the Financial Services Office.
