Verification Process

Not all students will be selected for the verification process. For those who are, Olivet’s Office of Student Financial Services is here to help.

Verification is a process used to confirm the information you provided on your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The U.S. Department of Education selects students for the verification process randomly or because FAFSA data was incomplete, estimated or inconsistent. Our office may select others if we find conflicting information.

If you are selected for verification, Olivet is required to collect documentation from you to verify the information reported on your FAFSA. This may include verification forms, tax return transcripts, W2 forms or additional information. The verification process ensures that eligible students receive all of the aid for which they qualify.

Regardless of why you were chosen, our office will work with you to collect the proper documentation. Your federal and/or state financial aid cannot be applied to your student account until verification is complete. Please be aware that your financial aid could change as a result of verification.
