Verification Forms

Some applications for Federal Student Aid are selected for a process called verification. Verification is used to confirm the data provided on your FAFSA was correctly entered. FAFSAs are selected for verification for many reasons and being selected does not mean that you did anything wrong.

If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you will be required to submit additional documentation to UNK in order for your financial aid to be awarded. UNK will notify you via email and on your MyBLUE “To Do List” to let you know the type(s) of additional documentation that will be required. Note: If you have not been contacted by the UNK Financial Aid Office it is likely that your application hasn't been selected and there is no further action for you to take.

When all the documents requested have been received, your file will be reviewed. Based upon the review, additional information may be requested from you. It is important that you monitor your MyBLUE “To Do List” to stay informed on the progress of your file.

You can expect the processing of your verification paperwork to take up to two weeks from the date you turn in your complete documentation packet to the Office of Financial Aid. Note: all requested documents must be received in order to have your file reviewed. Please also be aware that the UNK Office of Financial Aid experiences seasonal changes in volume which may affect expected processing times.

We recommend that you complete verification as soon as possible so you can be awarded in a timely manner. Please be aware that you will not be offered aid until your file is completed. Consequently, you may be negatively impacted due to fund availability the longer you wait to submit your documents.
