Every year the U.S. Department of Education selects a percentage of applicants for a review process called verification. This process involves collecting documents from you to verify the information that you provided on your FAFSA. If you are selected for verification, don’t assume you’ve done something wrong! Verification is a standard review process, and all you need to do is provide the requested information in a timely fashion.
Notification: If your application is selected for verification, you will be notified on your Student Aid Report (SAR) and then by Midway’s Financial Aid Office by email regarding the necessary documentation you need to provide. You may also check your Student Portal to see which forms you need to submit. Contact our office at (859)846-5410 or by email at FAID@midway.edu for further clarification.
Verification Deadlines: Once selected for verification, you cannot receive any federal or state financial aid funds until the verification process has been completed. Verification documents should be submitted within two weeks of the date of request. The deadline for submission of verification documents is thirty days prior to the end of term, and federal and state aid may not be awarded if the deadline is missed.
After the verification process is complete, you will receive information regarding any necessary changes to your FAFSA and your resulting eligibility for financial aid.
