Some FAFSA applications are selected for a process called Verification. If you are one of the chosen ones it will be indicated on your Student Aid Report by an asterisk (*). The Financial Aid Office will notify you which forms you need to complete and let you know of any other required documentation.
If an applicant uses the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, within the FAFSA form, to transfer federal income tax return data to the FAFSA without modification, the unmodified data elements will not be subject to verification. This will also save time if you are selected for Verification as you will not have to request a Tax Return Transcript.
