Financial Aid Verification Process

Verification confirms through documentation review that the information provided on a student’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is accurate. Students are randomly selected for verification by the Department of Education or if conflicting information is presented. The verification process prevents ineligible students from receiving aid if they are found to be reporting false information. It also ensures that eligible students receive all of the aid for which they are qualified.

Students selected for verification are notified by email that additional documents are needed. This email will be sent to students’ Saint Leo email addresses only.

Student Financial Services will review the submitted documentation and make changes as necessary. The student should refrain from making additional changes unless instructed by the Student Financial Services Office.
