The Department of Education analyzes the submitted FAFSA data against a series of data edits. If the FAFSA data fails one or more of these edits, the FAFSA may be selected for federal verification. Additionally, in our review of FAFSA data, the Financial Aid Office may find discrepancies in FAFSA data that require our office to select the FAFSA record for verification. Students selected for federal verification are notified of required documentation to verify the FAFSA data. Until the verification process is complete, the student cannot be awarded federal, state, and institutional financial aid. Students have 60 days, from the time of notification, to submit the requested verification documents. The verification process cannot be waived.
The Financial Aid Office will send an email to your UNMC email address. The email communication will provide you with guidance on how to access your verification requirements on your MyRecords 'To Do List'.
You have 3 options for submitting your verification documents to the Financial Aid Office:
Walk-in: The financial aid office is located on the second floor of the Student Life Center on Campus. A drop box is available outside the office, located directly to the right of the door of the Financial Aid office.
Email: Completed documents can be scanned and emailed to the Financial Aid Office.
Fax: You can fax completed documents to 402-559-6796
No, Parent Verification documents must be completed and SIGNED by the parent. The form can be sent by mail or fax.
The Financial Aid Office will extend the 60 day due date if a student or parent has filed an extension or amendment with the government for documents that are being requested, for example, requesting an extension for filing taxes. Documents will still need to be filed to the UNMC Financial Aid Office as soon as possible.
