Verification is a process in which the U.S. Department of Education requires schools to collect documents to verify the information submitted by you and/or your parent(s) on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Schools are prohibited from awarding/disbursing financial aid until the verification process is completed by the Office of Financial Aid.
- It is important not to submit any documentation unless requested to do so by the Office of Financial Aid.
- If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you will be contacted by the Office of Financial Aid through your Pacific student email.
- If selected, the Office of Financial Aid will send you a link to create an account through Verify My FAFSA secure website, where you and/or your parent can submit and electronically sign your verification documents.
- Monitor your student email account for communications from the Office of Financial Aid.
