Verification is a process used to validate certain information you entered on your FAFSA. Students are randomly selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education. If you are selected for Verification, you will receive an email from our office describing the Verification Group you have been assigned to. The documents you are required to submit are based upon your Verification Group. You will need to complete and submit all required forms and documentation before any money can be disbursed to you. The sooner you verify your information, the sooner you'll be able to receive the aid you're eligible for.
If you know your Verification Group, you may use the links below:
- Group 1 Verification
- Group 2 Verification
- Group 3 Verification
- Group 4 Verification
- Group 5 Verification
- Group 6 Verification
Processing usually takes two to three weeks, but it can take up to four weeks during the peak season. Because verification must be completed in advance of disbursing any money from any financial aid program, it is vital to send complete and correct information as quickly as possible.
2014-2015 Verification Deadline
Per Federal regulations the final deadline to process corrections for the 2015 aid year is September 28, 2015. To allow time for accurate processing, the deadline to submit verification documents to TAMUK for 2014-2015 financial aid is September 7, 2015 or 120 days after your last day of enrollment at TAMUK, whichever comes first. You must have an official SAR and EFC processed by the Department of Education by June 30, 2015, or by the last day of your enrollment, whichever comes first. Submission of documents does not guarantee a disbursement of funds. Eligibility for a disbursement would be considered for Federal Pell Grant only (undergraduate students only). To be considered for a Direct Loan or Campus-based funds disbursement, you must submit any required verification documents to our office 15 business days before the official closing of the semester in which you are enrolled at least half time.
