provided correct information, we will compare your FAFSA with the information on this institutional verification document and with any
other required documents. If there are differences, your FAFSA information may need to be corrected. You and your spouse (if
applicable) whose information was reported on the FAFSA must complete and sign this institutional verification document, attach any
required documents, and submit the form and other required documents to us. We may ask for additional information. If you have
