An applicant for financial assistance may be requested to provide personal and family financial information to verify financial and family statistical data reported on the student’s application.
The student will be required to provide the Office of Financial Aid with the documents necessary to complete the verification process. The student’s eligibility to receive financial assistance is based on the accuracy of this information. Since verification is a continual process, it may be necessary for the student to provide additional documentation, corrections and/or new information during the school year.
Failure to provide requested documentation, corrections and/or new information can result in financial aid awards being canceled and/or the student being required to repay financial assistance already received. Misreporting of information is a violation of the law and may be considered a federal offense. No financial assistance will be awarded until the verification process is completed.
