Why am I being asked to verify my FAFSA?

When you complete your FAFSA, you may receive a message that says: “Your FAFSA has been selected for a review process called verification.” All this means is that you may have to take a few extra steps to confirm the information you reported on your FAFSA before you can receive financial aid funds. This is nothing to be concerned about, and if the verification information matches the information we have already received, it will not have any impact on your financial aid.
