Verification is the comparison of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) information (Note: Some video sharing platforms, such as Youtube, will stop supporting Internet Explorer soon. Please use a different browser such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox, or Safari) with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) data, required forms and additional documentation. Verification is a process of ensuring the information you entered on the FAFSA is correct. If you are selected for verification by the Department of Education or NDSU, you must complete the verification process if you are interested in receiving federal, state, and some types of institutional financial aid. You may be asked to verify information such as income, federal income tax paid, household size, status as a dependent or independent student, citizenship, etc.

If you have been selected for verification, NDSU will send a request for required documentation to your NDSU e-mail account. The list of required documents are in the To Do list, under the Tasks tile, on Campus Connection and updates on the status of your documents. See Navigating Your To Do List.
