Our Best Answer:
What is verification and how long will it take?


The Dept. of Education requires that we receive a minimum amount of FAFSAs each year to check for accuracy. In order for us to complete verification, it will be necessary for you to turn in your tax return transcript (if you filed), as well as your parents’ tax return transcript (if they filed, and if you were required to include them on your FAFSA). Other documentation may be requested from you as well. Generally, verifications are completed within 3-5 business days of your file being completed. If corrections must be sent to the Dept. of Education, processing may take an additional 7-10 business days. Please turn in all requested documents as quickly as possible to avoid a delay in your financial aid disbursement.
