FAFSA Verification Guide: Welcome

Helping students understand and get through the FAFSA Verification process.

FAFSA Verification

Verification is the process used by the Department of Education to ensure the information provided on a FASFA is accurate. In most cases, students are selected for verification at random, although some students may be asked to verify information that appears to be inconsistent. 

This guide is intended to be used by students and families trying to clear verification flags so that they can receive complete and finalized financial aid awards.
