Verification is a review process, directed by the Department of Education, in which the Financial Aid Office is required to determine the accuracy of the information provided by you on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Verification must be completed before aid eligibility can be finalized. Financial aid will not be disbursed to your student account until verification is complete, so it is important that you submit requested documentation as soon as possible.
