Verification

During the processing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the U.S. Department of Education will select some of the applications for a process known as “verification.” Certain inconsistencies found when processing the FAFSA may increase the likelihood that the application will be selected for verification. Some of the FAFSAs submitted are also randomly selected for verification. You might see a note on your Student Aid Report saying you’ve been selected for verification. Texas Southern University will be notified electronically by the U.S. Department of Education when a FAFSA is selected for verification. By federal guidelines, TSU also has the right to select any application where it may detect inconsistencies. If you’re selected for verification, don’t assume you’re being accused of doing anything wrong, but do understand that your information will be reviewed. If the initial review does not resolve the inconsistent information, you may be asked to supply additional or more detailed information. TSU must resolve any inconsistent information prior to the disbursement of aid.
