Explanation of Verification

During verification, the CSB/SJU financial aid office will ask the applicant to confirm the accuracy of certain information reported on the FAFSA. This confirmation process is typically completed through the student and parents' use of the FAFSA IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer parent and student income and tax information from the IRS into the student's FAFSA.

Applicants selected for verification must also complete the CSB/SJU Financial Aid Form on which additional information is provided that must also be verified (e.g. family size, number in college, and untaxed income). Verification is intended to improve the accuracy of the information submitted on the FAFSA. The college financial aid office may not process requests for professional judgment or disburse federal student aid until the verification process is complete.
