Every year a certain number of financial aid applicants are selected for verification. This may happen in two ways. Students may be selected at random by the Department of Education. The Student Aid Report will indicate whether you have been selected for verification. Additionally, the Financial Aid Office may select a student for verification based upon unusual or conflicting information received from the student.
Students who are selected for verification will receive correspondence from the Office of Financial Aid that will detail the subsequent documents that must be submitted. Students must submit the requested items to the Financial Aid Office. If there is conflicting information, corrections must be made. These corrections may result in a change in the of student's eligibility to receive financial aid.
