A student is selected for verification by the Department of Education (ED) to ensure the accuracy of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) information provided. The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) is required to collect additional documentation from you in order to complete this ED requirement.
Please note: OSFA may be required to correct a student’s federal financial aid offer as a result of verification. This corrected aid offer may differ from the student’s initial financial aid offer. Verification must be completed before a student can receive federal financial aid.
