Each time you file a FAFSA form, you may be randomly selected for a process called verification. If selected for verification, the Financial Aid Office must request certain documents from you in order to verify the information that you supplied in the FAFSA is correct.

Items needed for verification will appear on your PASS account To Do List. If your financial aid award is completed prior to your file being verified, the award may change if any of the FAFSA information had to be corrected.
