If your FAFSA is selected for verification, immediately submit all requested documentation to the Financial Aid Office. Failure to provide required documentation by stated deadlines may negatively impact your financial aid award package.
The Financial Aid Office will not disburse federal, state or need-based institutional aid until the verification process has been completed. Thus, it is very important for students to submit required documentation as soon as possible. For students whose applications are selected for verification, financial aid awards are considered estimated until the required evaluation related to the verification process is completed.
Please note that during verification review, additional information may be required from the family in order to clarify inconsistencies. The Financial Aid Office will contact you via University email if additional clarification is needed. It is important to respond to any requests for additional information immediately.
Participation in the verification process is not optional. If the student does not submit the requested documentation, the student will not be eligible to receive federal, state or institutional need-based financial aid, and the parents of a dependent student will not be eligible to receive a PLUS loan.
