Your 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for verification. Verification is the process used to confirm that
the data reported on your FAFSA form is accurate. The law states that the verification process must be completed before disbursing Federal
Student Aid. We may ask for additional information, if necessary, for clarification. If you have questions about verification, contact the
financial aid office as soon as possible so that your financial aid will not be delayed.
