Verification of Federal and State Aid Awards

Students who receive federal or state aid may be selected for verification of the financial information that they provided in their aid application. Students selected for verification will be required to provide information in addition to that which they have already provided. Students should submit the required documents to the financial aid office within two weeks of the verification request. The financial aid office will not certify a Federal Direct Loan application or authorize federal or state financial aid to be applied to a student’s account until verification is complete. If the information provided in the verification is different from that contained in the original financial aid application, the financial aid office will re- evaluate students’ aid application using the verified information.
