Verification is a process of review that determines the accuracy of the information submitted by the student and family on the FAFSA and that resolves conflicting data. Students may be selected for verification through a random selection by the U.S. Department of Education. The OSFA is required to collect documents to verify the information on the FAFSA. These documents include, but are not limited to, federal tax transcripts and documentation of assets and family size.

A timely response to a documentation request is important. Your financial aid application cannot be processed without the requested documentation.
