Verification

The Department of Education requires schools to compare, or verify, certain demographic and financial information reported on the FAFSA with other supporting documentation.

If you have been selected for verification and you do not want to receive federal and state aid, you are not required to complete the verification process. Please email our office at financial_aid@baylor.edu if you do not plan to complete the verification process.

You will receive notification from our office regarding documentation required to complete verification. Please do not submit any documents to our office unless specifically directed to do so.

Please note: Incoming students who are selected for verification will receive estimated federal and state financial aid awards. You will receive a revised award notification if the estimated awards change as a result of the verification process. Awards will not apply toward your semester charges until the verification process is complete.
