Financial Aid Verification Worksheet

Each year the United States Department of Education randomly selects Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to undergo the verification process. Schools also independently select specific applications to undergo verification if there are discrepancies in the data the student provided in their Financial Aid application. If you are chosen for verification you must submit requested documentation and complete a verification worksheet in order to complete your application for financial aid. GST BOCES will inform you of required documentation if selected.
