Verification is a process to confirm the information you provided on the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Verification selection can be random or because your FAFSA data was incomplete, estimated or inconsistent. The U.S. Department of Education selects some students for the verification process. We will select others if we find conflicting information.
We are required to ask you to provide documentation to confirm the information on your FAFSA. This will include a verification worksheet and may include your tax transcript or return. If you are a dependent student, we may also request a copy of your parent's tax return transcript.
