Verification is a process to confirm the information you provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Verification selection can be random or it can be because your FAFSA data was incomplete, estimated, or inconsistent. The U.S. Department of Education selects some students for the verification process. The University of Mount Union may select others if conflicting information is found.
We are required to ask you to provide documentation to confirm the information on your FAFSA. This will include a few verification forms that will be mailed to the student’s home address and your tax information. If you are a dependent student, you will need to provide your parents’ tax information, as well.
