Did you receive a notice that you were selected for verification?

What is Verification?

Verification is a process in which the educational institution confirms the accuracy of the information reported in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students are randomly selected by the federal processor.

If you are selected for verification, our office will request additional documentation that supports the information you reported. Verification must be completed so that financial aid can be correctly determined and awarded to you.

Provide Household Information

Check your financial aid required documents on UAOnline to confirm which verification worksheet is needed, then locate the correct form on the Financial Aid Forms page.

Provide Income Confirmation

The Department of Education requires students to either submit a Tax Return Transcript or Link Your Taxes if selected for verification. You can choose to link your taxes to your FAFSA by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in place of submitting a tax transcript. 

You can obtain your tax return transcript for free one of the following ways:

Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any difficulty linking or obtaining a tax return transcript.
