Verification
 
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 FAFSA. 
 If you are selected for Verification, you will be notified via email notification to the email address you listed on your FAFSA. No financial aid will be posted to your account until we receive and process your Verification documents
