What additional application requirements might be requested if I am selected for verification?

Once your FAFSA is submitted, your information will be verified by matching the information on your FAFSA with a series of federally mandated data (Social Security Number, date of birth, name, selective service status, citizenship status, and default status). You may also be selected for the verification process by the U.S. Department of Education, which is a random quality control method used to check the accuracy of information submitted on the FAFSA.

If you are selected for verification, the UH Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will notify you via email informing you of missing information. Any missing information is “initiated” in your myUH To-Do list, and is required to process your financial aid application. These requirements can be viewed online via myUH. Failure to submit the requested documents will prevent awarding or result in the cancellation of existing financial aid awards. If any differences are found between information reported in the FAFSA and actual figures reported in verification documents, corrections will be made to your FAFSA and adjustments may be made to your financial aid package.

Note: When referring to your myUH To-Do List, be sure to select the correct award year for financial aid information. 2012 aid year includes Fall 2011, Spring 2012, and Summer 2012 semesters. 2013 aid year includes Fall 2012, Spring 2013, and Summer 2013 semesters.
