Why did I get selected for FAFSA verification?

There is a chance that students who file a FAFSA are selected by the Department of Education for verification. This selection is partially random, but there are certain inconsistent answers that will also trigger verification. The school you attend may also select additional students for verification, based on their own criteria. It does not mean that you answered anything wrong. If corrections are necessary, they will be sent by the school and once verification is complete, your financial aid will continue to be processed.
