Financial aid verification
Verification is a requirement set forth by the federal government that obliges colleges and universities to verify the data reported by students and their parent(s) on the FAFSA. Approximately thirty percent of students who submit a FAFSA will be federally selected for verification. If a student is selected, the institution is responsible for collecting all data required by the U.S. Department of Education. Any student who submits a FAFSA or the Institutional Methodology for Non-FAFSA Eligible Students form may be selected for verification.
If you did not submit a FAFSA and were selected by completing an Institutional Methodology for Non-FAFSA Eligible Students form, your selection was institutionally determined. Data collected does not get reported to the Department of Education.
