Verification of Eligibility

Federal regulations require that certain information on selected applications be verified. Students whose applications are selected by the United States Department of Education for verification are required to document the accuracy of application information, such as adjusted gross income, taxes paid, number of family members, untaxed income, and other information from tax transcripts, and any other documentation as requested by the Office of Financial Aid. Students cannot be certified as eligible for financial aid until the verification process has been completed.
