FAFSA Verification

Students may be selected by the Department of Education or Randolph College to review their documentation submitted on the FAFSA. If selected, the student (and parent) will go through a process called “verification”.

What is verification?

Verification is a process in which information submitted on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is reviewed by the Office of Financial Aid at Randolph College to check the accuracy and completeness of the data supplied by the student and/or parent(s). Federal guidelines require that verification be performed on applicants selected by the Department of Education Central Processing System (CPS) or by the school. At Randolph College, federal verification is performed on all applicants selected by the CPS and any other application selected by the college. If selected for verification, the student should immediately submit all requested documentation to the Office of Financial Aid for review.

Why was I selected for verification?

Many students selected for verification are chosen randomly. However, you are more likely to be selected for verification if the data you provided on the FAFSA was inconsistent, if the FAFSA you submitted was incomplete, or if your FAFSA contained estimated information.

What if I do not want to complete the verification process?

Students and parents are under no obligation to complete the verification process; however, you are not eligible for federal  financial assistance. If you do not wish to complete the verification process, you should notify the Office of Financial Aid via email or letter.
