Each year, approximately 30 percent of financial aid applications are selected for federal verification and an additional amount require additional review due to conflicting information. As a result, you’ll need to provide additional documentation so we can ensure the information provided on your financial aid application is accurate. If your file is selected, you must complete the process before we can provide you with a financial aid award letter.
If your FAFSA record is selected for standard verification, we will transmit your information electronically to the School Servicing Center. They will process it and determine what information they need to confirm the information you submitted on your FAFSA. After they have received your documentation, you will be able to log onto their website at www.sscwp.org and view what information they need and submit it electronically.
The School Servicing Center will handle most students selected for verification. However, the ABAC Office of Financial Aid will still request documents to resolve C flags, special circumstances, and statements of identity.
After all required documents are received, a processor will review the student’s file to determine award packaging.
NOTE: During the verification process, it may be determined that additional documents are needed to complete the verification process. Once this process is complete (between 5-7 days to process), the award package will be available for viewing.
NOTE: Awards are made beginning in April each year for the following academic year, so early completion of the FAFSA application is important.
