Verification


What is Verification?

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. You will need to complete and submit all required forms and documentation before any aid can be awarded or disbursed to you. Processing can take up to two weeks.

Priority Deadline: July 1, 2020

Per Federal regulations, the final deadline to process corrections for the 2020-2021 aid year is September 19, 2021. To allow time for accurate processing, the deadline to submit 2020-2021 verification documents for the term you are enrolled at TAMUK:

Submission of documents does not guarantee disbursement of funds. Eligibility for 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 before the official dates of the semester in which you are enrolled at least half time.

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 your JNet student portal. Students will be notified via email and prompted to log into JNet student portal to view the requirements that are needed. Students should provide all requested documentation as soon as possible after requested, but no later than the official dates of the semester in which you are enrolled in. This is 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.
