Student Financial Aid
Verification

 

Thirty percent of all aid applicants are selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education and verified by our office through review of tax documents. This is to insure that your FAFSA was completed correctly. Your SAR will tell you if you have been selected.

We will request copies of student (parent/spouse, if applicable) tax returns and a Verification Worksheet. This request will come in the form of a letter for new students, an e-mail for currently enrolled students. You may print a copy of the Verification Worksheet from our "Forms" link.. Please provide requested documents as soon as possible. If not provided within 60 days of the request, your file will be marked inactive and no award will be made.

Our office will make corrections to your SAR, if necessary, as a result of verification. You will be notified by the Federal Processor and/or our office either with a corrected SAR or a revised Award Letter. This process will result in a 2-3 week delay. A FAFSA that is completed correctly will not require corrections.
