The verification process requires you to confirm the data you reported on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In most cases, students are selected at random by the Department of Education for verification. The University reserves the right to select a record for verification if documentation does not appear to be accurate. If you are selected for verification, you will need to submit all required documentation before any Title IV aid can be disbursed to your account.
Eligibility for need-based awards is determined by the information you have provided on your FAFSA. This information is also used to calculate an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). In applying for and receiving need-based aid, you agree to provide any additional information to document your eligibility to this office. The University reserves the right to request and review this additional information and, if necessary, to reduce or cancel awards made based on updated or corrected financial and other information. You are responsible for the accuracy of all data submitted on your FAFSA copies of federal tax transcripts, and other relevant documents. Each year the U.S. Department of Education selects a percentage of students who complete the FAFSA to have their financial information verified.
