Verification for Selected Students

Please note that not all students are selected for verification.  Students will receive notice that they have been selected for verification after the Office of Financial Aid receives the FAFSA.

Verification is a federal financial requirement in which the Federal Central Processing Center (CPS) randomly selects Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) applicants for verification (which will be noted on your “Student Aid Report” or “SAR”).    Once selected the process of comparing the self-reported information on the FAFSA to that of a signed copy of the federal tax form or a copy of the IRS Tax Transcripts and other financial documents begins.  Students can view the status of verification in the financial aid section of YourConnection under "Eligibility" followed by "Student Requirements".
