FAFSA Verification

What is Verification?

When students complete the FAFSA, the U.S. Department of Education may select the FAFSA application for Verification. During verification, UAM is required to collect specific documents from you to verify information reported on your FAFSA. This process is mandated by the U.S. Department of Education to ensure information provided on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate. If needed, the Financial Aid Office will notify you of verification checklist items using your official UAM email address and WeevilNet.

Why was I selected for verification?

Being selected does not mean you are in trouble. The Department of Education uses a system which randomly selects FAFSA applications for verification.
