The US Department of Education and/or UMC may select students for a process called Verification. This process verifies the information you reported on your FAFSA is correct. The selection of applications is accomplished primarily through a series of edit checks that are designed to identify applications with the greatest likelihood for error. Most selection is at random. If you’re selected, you may be asked to verify: income, federal income tax paid, household size, independent student status, number of family members enrolled in post-secondary education, and untaxed income and benefits received. You may be required to provide copies of other applicable information and/or forms as requested by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
