What is Verification?  What this short video. Click Here!

Verification is a federal financial aid regulation. Students are selected at random by the United States Department of Education. Students are notified once the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is completed and process. The student will receive a Student Aid Report either by email or regular mail if no email address was provided in the initial application process. Students should read their Student Aid Report carefully and provide Garrett College with the documentation required. Garrett College reserves the right to select any student not already selected by the United States Department of Education.

Students will be notified by email of documents required to complete verification. On occasion the documents provided may prompt us to request additional documentation. We would appreciate your full cooperation in this matter. Students may access all required documents on the myFinAid portal.

Students will NOT be considered for any federal aid until verification is complete. Late documents will be accepted but a delay in processing may occur.
