FAFSA Verification Update

2022-2023

1.   Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose: students must still submit this form. However, institutions may accept copies of the required verification documents electronically. This may occur by uploading a photo of the documents (including from a smartphone), PDF, or other similar electronic document through a secure portal at the institution, by email, etc. Also, electronic signatures using a stylus or finger to sign the statement, or an image of the individual’s signature affixed to the statement in lieu of obtaining a wet signature, will be accepted. Students no longer must submit this form in-person or get it notarized.

On May 18, 2022, the U.S. Department of Education announced that there will be a waiver for certain verification requirements for the 2022-23 aid year as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 national emergency; with the following exceptions:

2. Institutions are still required to resolve conflicting information concerning a student’s eligibility. If an institution has conflicting information concerning a student’s eligibility, including documentation obtained during the verification process, the institution must resolve the discrepancies before disbursing financial aid funds.

With the above guidance in place, UIS will waive requirements for verification, other than the statement of educational purpose.

2023-2024

At this time, Federal Student Aid expects institutions to complete verification for those FAFSA applications that are selected by the Federal Processing System.

The flexibilities provided in #1 above for the Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose continue to be in place.
