What is Verification?
We are verifying information you put on your FAFSA.
This process is completed online. That means you must check your email often. Through email, you will find out your status, if there are any other documents we need, etc.
If you are selected, your financial aid application will not be processed until Verification is complete.
How will I know if I am selected for Verification?
There are two ways.
The Verification email will be sent to the email address you listed on your FAFSA. If you don’t see it in your in box, check your spam.
If your Student Aid Report says you have been chosen for Verification, but you don’t get an email, please call the Financial Aid Call Center at 972-587-2599 or visit your college Financial Aid Office.
If you are a dependent student, your parents will also receive the same email.

How will I know when I’m done?
