Alabama Possible Webinar: FAFSA Verification

December 11, 2018
10:00 AM

Please join Alabama Possible's Colby Leopard, advocacy coordinator, and the National College Access Network (NCAN)'s MorraLee Keller, director of technical assistance, Jack Porter, advocacy associate, and Bill DeBaun, director of data and evaluation, for a special presentation about the ways FAFSA verification is affecting students in Alabama.

What is Verification?

Verification is a federal audit of submitted Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSAs). Approximately 30% of all FAFSA filers and 50% of low-income FAFSA filers are selected to provide additional documentation of the income information they report on the form.

Students will need to complete the verification process with each school they have applied to before the school will provide a financial aid award letter. The process may vary from school to school, but consistently requires providing tax return transcripts. These students are not eligible to receive financial aid until they have completed the verification process.
