How We Confirm Your FAFSA Information

So, your FAFSA has been selected for verification. That's okay—many students across the country get selected for verification. We're here to help you understand the process, so our Office of Financial Aid (OFA) can successfully verify your FAFSA. Verification is a required process of the U.S. Department of Education, and it happens every year. Financial aid applicants who get selected must have their financial information verified by the Office of Financial Aid. These students and families must submit additional documentation to complete their financial aid application.

Be sure to complete verification if selected, because not doing so may delay or cancel your federal financial aid.

Required Documentation

Verification is a normal part of the financial aid process. When you've been selected, you must submit additional documentation. The OFA uses this documentation to verify your and your family's information on your completed FAFSA. Here’s the documentation you'll need to submit:

  1. Completed verification worksheet
  2. Student’s complete federal income tax return, including all schedules and W2 forms.
  3. Parents’ complete federal income tax return (if you’re a dependent)
  4. Spouse’s completed federal income tax return (if you’re married)
  5. Verification of non-taxed income
