Policies and Procedures


What is Verification?

Verification is a process used to confirm that the data reported on your FAFSA is accurate. About 30% of students nationwide are randomly selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education. You will be asked to provide documentation to support the information reported on the FAFSA.


Texas A&M University-Kingsville is utilizing ProVerifier+, an automated verification software solution powered by ProEd Solutions. Students can complete verification from their smartphone, tablet or computer.

If you are selected for verification, you will be notified by email to your TAMUK student email address. Also, there will be a Verification item on your financial aid checklist in your Blue and Gold portal. Log in to ProVerifier and see what documents are required. You will be required to submit documentation such as Federal Tax Transcripts, W2s, and a verification worksheet. Financial aid will NOT be paid to your account until your documentation is submitted, reviewed, and cleared.

You should expect to receive an email from ProVerifier+ in the following situations:

  • Initial Email: generated when student is identified for verification processing
  • Welcome Email: generated after student initially logs into the ProVerifier+ Student Portal
  • Missing or Incomplete Email: generated every 5 days when documents are missing or incomplete
  • Additional Documents Requested Email: generated when subsequent items are added to the student checklist
  • Confirmation Email: generated when a form is successfully completed
  • All Documents Submitted Email: generated when all verifications documents have been submitted by student
  • Verification Corrections Email: generated when student’s file moves to the awaiting corrections queue
  • Verification Completed Email: generated when ProVerifier+ completes verification
  • Other custom messages as needed from ProVerifier+ or the TAMUK Financial Aid team by email, phone call, or text.

NOTE: The priority submission date is July 1st of every year.

To allow time for accurate processing, the deadline to submit verification documents for the term you are enrolled at TAMUK:

  • Fall Semester- November 1
  • Spring Semester- April 1
  • Summer Semester- June 1 

*Submitting outstanding requirements after the priority submission date (July 1) may result in delayed financial aid award offers and out-of-pocket payments until award offers are finalized.

Verification Steps

  1. Activate your ProEd Account using the email notification sent to your TAMUK email address.
  2. In ProVerifier+ review the dashboard to see the items that need to be completed.
  3. Carefully complete and submit each outstanding item. Most items can be completed online and signed electronically.
  4. You will be able to request your IRS Tax Transcript using the ProVerifier+ system.
  5. Upload any necessary documents
  6. The Office of Student Financial Aid will review your documents submitted and notify you of missing or incomplete items.

Student Responsibility:

When a student is selected for verification, it is the responsibility of the student to submit all required documents as soon as possible in order to receive any aid that the student may be eligible for. All required documentation will be requested via email and listed in the requirements section of your JNet student portal. Students should provide all documentation upon request to avoid delays in processing and payment of funds.
