Verification is a Federal process used to confirm students' eligibility for certain aid programs. Students who are selected for verification must submit information to verify the data that they provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Students selected for verification will be notified via email.

Financial aid may not disburse to the student's account until verification is completed.
