·        Verification is a process used to confirm that the information you provided on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate.  Students are selected at random by system edits at the U.S. Department of Education or the university.  This process can occur before or after a student is awarded financial aid.  If you are selected for verification the UNI Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships will request documents from you to verify the information you reported on your FAFSA.  Submitting the requested documents in a timely manner helps to expedite the typical 7-10 day verification process.
