Verification

You will receive notification by mail once UA has received your FAFSA information.

All new students will be asked to complete and return a Master Institutional Aid Application.

Approximately 1/3 of all students are randomly selected by the US Department of Education for a process known as verification. These students will also be asked to complete and return additional information. It is important to complete and return any requested materials quickly so we can process your financial aid and send you an Award Notification.

Verification Questions

I have misplaced the forms required for verification. Can I get another copy?

Extra forms are provided in the verification section of the Forms website. You only need to complete the forms requested.

How do I know what forms were requested?

Check My Akron. The forms requested will be listed in My Akron as To Do items in your Student Center.

Why are my To Do items still open in My Akron after I have returned the documents?

To Do items are not updated as received in My Akron until all documents are received and verified for accuracy. This process can take 2-3 weeks.

How will I know if you’ve received my verification materials?

Once all requested materials are received, we will mail you notification to let you know that we’ve received everything, or that we need more information. After your documents are processed, your My Akron To Do list will be updated. This can take a few weeks.
