Each year, approximately 30 percent of financial aid applications are selected for federal verification and an additional amount require additional review due to conflicting information. As a result, you’ll need to provide additional documentation so we can ensure the information provided on your financial aid application is accurate. If your file is selected, you must complete the process before we can provide you with a financial aid award letter.
Being selected for federal verification or additional review is not a reason to panic as long as you filled out your financial aid application accurately and to the best of your abilities. Below, you’ll find instructions on how to proceed if you’re selected, along with answers to several of our most frequently asked questions.
Federal Verification vs. Conflicting Information
Applications selected for federal verification are chosen by the U.S. Department of Education, while applications that have conflicting information between the FAFSA and VFAO Profile are selected for additional review by Urshan College. In both cases, further documentation is required before we can offer financial aid.
Overview of the Process
If you’re selected for federal verification or have conflicting information, we’ll notify you via student email address so you can help us verify that the information you submitted on your financial aid application is accurate.
However, if you do not wish to apply for any need-based assistance, this process is not required. It’s also not required if you are certain you will not be attending Urshan College within the academic year. If you’re selected and any of these circumstances apply, please contact us.
If any documentation is needed to be submitted we will work with you to insure the process is correct.
