Verification of Application Information
This is the 2019-2020 UH Hilo catalog, previous year catalogs can be viewed on the Back Issues page.
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 submit on the FAFSA. If selected, you must submit a verification worksheet, federal income tax data from the IRS, and/or other supporting documents. Until your information has been verified, a financial aid award cannot be issued to you.
You will be notified via email 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 of the data reported on the FAFSA is found to be incorrect, your financial aid eligibility will be recalculated.
