Verification is a process to confirm that the information you provide on your FAFSA is accurate. Students are selected at random by system edits at the U.S. Department of Education or the university. This process occurs before or after a student is awarded financial aid. If you are selected for verification, the university will request certain documents from you to verify the information you report on your FAFSA. Submitting the requested documents in a timely manner helps to expedite the typical 7-10 day verification process.
