No, not all students receive a financial aid refund. Once your bill is paid in full, if the amount of aid received was in excess of your expenses, you will receive a check for the difference. NOTE: Once a refund is issued, the student must stay in school, otherwise, you may end up having to return some of the refund since technically you did not earn that award (money).

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


  • If you see an asterisk next to the expected family contribution (EFC) on your Student Aid Report (SAR), your FAFSA has been selected for verification.
  • Check your student email and student requirements on JNET. You may also receive a phone call notifying you about your missing documents for verification.

The Office of Financial Aid requires all students/parents to submit their tax returns from 2 years prior to the current year of aid if they filed taxes and did not use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when filling out the FAFSA. Example: If the aid year is 2020-2021, we will need your 2018 tax return(s).

Options for Obtaining tax returns:

  • IRS Website: Go to https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript and get your tax return online (Click link to view what information you need to request an online version of your tax transcript)
  • 4506T Form: Print, fill out the 4506T form, and mail or fax form to the IRS
