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).

Being selected for verification 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. ASU will select others if we find conflicting information.

The verification process can be confusing, and we want to make it as easy for you 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.

Check Your Status

To view your aid status, as well as the forms required to complete verification at ASU, please log into RamPort.

  1. Click the Banner Self Service (Rams) link under Student Quick Links.
  2. Select Financial Aid link.
  3. In the Award Year dropdown, choose the appropriate aid year.
