Verification is the process of confirming information reported by you and your parents or spouse on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate. Each year approximately 30% of student applicants nationwide are randomly selected by the Federal Central Processing System for verification. Applicants selected for review will need to complete verification before financial aid eligibility may be determined.
What do I need to submit?
- Check your myCSUB Financial Aid "To-Do List" to view any necessary paperwork.
- Return this paperwork as soon as possible (CSUB Document Submission deadline is July 15th for the fall term); your aid will be on hold until these forms are returned and processed.
What happens to my information?
The required forms and documents you submitted for verification will be compared to the information reported on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If the provided information does not match what is shown on your FAFSA, we will submit changes to the FAFSA processor. After all changes are made to your FAFSA data, CSUB will review your eligibility for financial aid.
