Verification Requirements

Student Aid Report 
The Student Aid Report (SAR) contains the information you reported on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you file the FAFSA electronically, you will receive your Student Aid Report electronically.

When you get your SAR, review it carefully to make sure it’s correct and complete. We will use your information to determine your eligibility for federal and state grant financial assistance. We might ask you to verify the accuracy of the data you provide on the FAFSA, so you need to be sure the information is accurate.

Correct any errors you find by visiting and selecting make corrections to a processed FAFSA.

If you don’t have any changes to make to the information listed on your SAR, just keep it for your records.
Verification & Additional Information Requests
About 30% of FAFSA applications are selected for a verification process each year by the U.S. Department of Education as a result of processing the FAFSA applications.

Based on the results of your FAFSA, we might need to collect additional information and/or documents from you to finalize your aid for the year. We will not be able to complete your application and award your federal aid along with your state grants, if eligible, until all documents have been submitted, your file is review and determined to be complete through the verification process. In addition, many types of aid cannot be credited to your student account until all application requirements are satisfied. Respond to any request for information within 15 days. 

All required documents can be viewed in your Banner Self Service account and you can find the forms here.
