Information on Verification

What is verification?

Verification is a process to confirm the information you provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Verification selection can be random or because your FAFSA data was incomplete, estimated or inconsistent. The U.S. Department of Education selects some students for the verification process. We will select others if we find conflicting information.

The verification process can be confusing and we want to make it as easy as possible.

We will ask you to provide documentation to confirm the information on your FAFSA. This will include a verification worksheet and may include your tax transcript. If you are a dependent student, we may also request a copy of your parent’s tax transcript.  If you are independent, married and filed separately, we may request a copy of your spouse’s tax transcript.
