(If you have incomplete documents under “Required Documents”, you are probably selected for verification.)
Verification is the process by which additional information is requested by the U.S. Department of Education, New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) and/or the office of Financial Aid to verify information on a student’s FAFSA. The supporting documentation is used by the financial aid office to check accuracy of the FAFSA information and make corrections if needed. If selected, a student MUST submit the requested documentation and complete the verification process before financial aid can be awarded. In certain cases, once verification begins, additional information may be requested to resolve additional discrepancies.
