Group 2 Verification
Group 2 Verification is reserved for Financial Aid Office use Only.
Some FAFSA applications are randomly selected by the U.S. Department of Education for a process called verification. Verification requires student and/or parent(s) to submit official financial information for review by the Office of Student Financial Aid before an Award Package can be offered. Documents may be submitted in person, or mailed to the Office of Student Financial Aid.
This process can take up to four weeks.
Verification Deadlines and Student Responsibility:
When a student is selected for verification, it is the responsibility of the student to submit all required documents in a timely manner to receive any aid that the student may be eligible for. All required documentation will be requested and listed in the requirements section in Blue & Gold Connection. Students will be notified via email and prompted to log into Blue & Gold to view the requirements that are needed. Students should provide all requested documentation as soon as possible after requested, but no later than 30 days before the official close of the semester in which you are enrolled to receive all aid that may be available, including Federal Pell grant and direct student loans.
NOTICE: If the Office of Student Financial Aid suspects that a student or other individual has purposely provided false or misleading information to fraudulently obtain federal funds, you may be reported to the U.S. Office of Inspector General, and may be subject to fine, sentenced to jail, or both by the U.S. Department of Education.
