Financial Aid Verification

If you’ve been selected for verification, that means the Financial Aid team needs to confirm that information you submitted on your FAFSA is correct. Being selected for verification is not uncommon, and providing the documents we need to continue processing your file is pretty simple. You may have questions about which forms to submit, how to upload documents, or how to add a parent signature. Check the FAQs below – the information you’re looking for is probably there. If you still have questions and want to speak with someone, please call Financial Aid and Scholarship Services at 855-278-5080 or chat with a team member.
