Each year, the U.S. Department of Education randomly chooses submitted FAFSA forms for a process called verification. The purpose is to ensure that information you supplied on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is accurate.
If you’re chosen for verification, the report you receive from the federal processor after submitting your FAFSA will say so. You’ll also get a letter from La Salle explaining exactly what documentation you must submit to the Financial Aid office. Typically, you’ll need to submit tax return transcripts, copies of W2 forms, or related documents.
Be sure to respond promptly if you’re chosen for verification. If you don’t submit the required documents, you’ll lose your financial aid.
