Financial Aid Verification

Verification is a process where the information on a student’s FAFSA is compared against supporting documentation for accuracy. This is to ensure that a student’s federal aid eligibility is calculated accurately.

The Department of Education or the Financial Aid Office may, at any time, select your application for verification based upon the information you have provided. Participation in the verification process is not optional. Madison College will request additional information that is required to continue the processing of your financial aid. You will not receive financial aid until all documentation is received and reviewed. Once documentation is submitted, the Madison College Financial Aid Office will compare information from your FAFSA with the information provided.
