The federal government randomly selects about 30% of applicants for a review process called verification. This requires colleges and universities to verify or confirm the data reported by students and their parent(s) on the FAFSA. The verification process ensures that eligible students receive all the financial aid to which they are entitled.

Click here for more information about Verification


The main reasons you could be selected for verification include:

  • Random selection

  • The FAFSA you submitted was incomplete

  • Your FAFSA contains estimated information

  • Data you provided on the FAFSA is inconsistent


Check your student email and student requirements on JNET. You may also receive a phone call notifying you about your missing documents for verification.
