6. Review the Checklist to complete the required action
- What is verification? ( If you have incomplete documents under “Required Documents”, you are probably selected for verification)
- Verification is the process by which additional information is requested by the U.S. Department of Education, New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) and/or the office of Financial Aid to verify information on a student’s FAFSA. The supporting documentation is used by the financial aid office to check accuracy of the FAFSA information and make corrections if needed. If selected, a student MUST submit the requested documentation and complete the verification process before financial aid can be awarded. In certain cases, once verification begins, additional information may be requested to resolve additional discrepancies.
- Why was I selected?
- Students are randomly selected by the U.S. Dept. of Education.
- The submitted FAFSA has either incomplete data and/or contains conflicting information.
- C-Flag Issues
- How am I notified of what verification documents must be provided?
- Students are able to check the status of their Financial Aid Application and determine what documents are missing through their Financial Aid Self-Service.
- The New Jersey higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) sends notification to the students directly. Student will not be able to see the missing information in their Financial Aid Self-Service but must check www.njgrants.org.
- What items are verified?
- Items requiring verification vary depending on the information reported on the individual’s students FAFSA. Some items that may be verified include:
- Household size
- Number of family members in college
- Adjusted Gross Income
- U.S. income tax paid
- Income earned from work
- Education credits
- Certain untaxed income
- High school completion
- Other items that may be required to be verified are C-Flags. A C-Flag is an indication that something on the students record must be resolved or verified before aid can be awarded. Some of the most common C-Flags include:
- Males who have not registered with Selective Service
- Being in default on at least one student loan
- Name and social security number not matching
- Unusual Enrollment History
- How long will the verification process take?
- The length of the verification process depends on the time of the year. Peak processing times occur before the start of a semester and verification of files takes longer to complete during this peak period. Priority deadline dates are set and posted on our website to ensure that students navigate the financial aid process seamlessly. Verification of files begins once ALL documents have been submitted. There are instances where once verification begins, additional documentation and information may be requested to resolve any discrepancies. If discrepant information is found, corrections will be made and additional time will be needed for processing, in which case, the verification process will take longer.
- Why are additional documents requested?
- If information that was reported on the FAFSA is inaccurate or conflicts with the verification information submitted, then the college may request additional documentation to resolve discrepancies.
- Will the verification process affect my financial aid award estimate?
- Financial aid award estimates may change, if there are significant differences in the information reported on the FAFSA compared with the actual verification documentation submitted such as a tax return transcripts and/or household size documentation.
- What happens if I do not provide the verification information that is being requested?
- Failure to submit verification documentation will result in ineligibility to receive either federal or state financial aid until verification documentation is received and completed.
- How and where do I submit the verification documents?
