Applicants Selected For Verification

UH Hilo Home > Student Affairs > Financial Aid

Your application for Federal student aid may be selected for a process known as verification.  This means that the Financial Aid Office must verify the accuracy of the information that you submitted on the FAFSA.  If selected, you must submit a verification worksheet, federal tax return transcripts, and/or other supporting documents.  Until your information has been verified, a financial aid award cannot be issued to you. 

You will be notified in writing (via email to your "hawaii.edu" email address if you've created one) if you have been selected for verification.  You will normally have 60 days to submit the required verification documents.  Failure to submit the verification documents will result in your financial aid file being closed and no award being issued.  If any data reported on the FAFSA is found to be incorrect, your financial aid eligibility will be recalculated.
