Verification is a process the Department of
Education uses to confirm the data reported on a Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate. For those selected for verification, the
University will contact the student for documentation in order to verify the
information entered on the FAFSA.
The deadline to complete verification is the first
term of a student’s program. If a student misses the deadline, the student must
submit their documents as soon as possible as CTU cannot determine aid eligibility until verification is complete. Students who fail to complete the verification process may lose access to class.
The final deadline for federal verification can be
found at https://fafsa.ed.gov/deadlines.htm.
Students submitting documents after the Federal deadline will not be eligible
for financial aid for that award year.
