VERIFICATION oF FEDERAL AID INFORMATION

Verification of Federal Aid Information

Verification is the process of checking the accuracy of the information supplied by financial aid applicants on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The guidelines used for verification are those published annually in the U.S. Department of Education's Verification Guide.

  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program
  • Federal Work-Study Program
  • Federal Stafford Loan Program

Verification Process

Applicants selected for verification may be required to submit documentation to the Hutchinson Community College Financial Aid Office in support of the data supplied on the FAFSA. The financial aid office will notify selected applicants of the documentation needed to complete the verification process.


Aid Distributed After Verification

If an application is selected for verification aid will not be disbursed from any of the aforementioned programs until the verification process has been completed.


Applicant Correction and Notification Procedures

Corrections to FAFSA data, resulting from verification, will be electronically submitted to the Central Processor (CPS) by the financial aid office. Notification of these corrections will then be sent to the applicant from CPS. Once CPS has notified the financial aid office that our requested changes have been accepted, the financial aid office will send an award notification to the applicant.
