UND or the Department of Education may request that you verify some of the information you provided on your FAFSA.
This process is called verification. Don't worry. Being chosen for verification is pretty common and doesn't necessarily mean you've done anything wrong. It just means you've been selected at random to verify such information as income, federal income tax paid, household size, status as a dependent or independent student, citizenship or something else.
What to Do If Selected for Verification
If you've been chosen for verification, submit the information requested as quickly as possible. Without it, you will not be eligible to receive federal, state and some types of institutional financial aid.
Contact the One-Stop Student Services to find out which forms you need to submit if you:
- Amended your tax return
- Were a victim of IRS identity theft
- Have been granted a tax filing extension
The communication you received informing you that you have been selected for verification indicates which forms are required. Use the tabs below to find the correct forms for the year in which you've been selected.
- Verification Worksheet - Dependent Student

How to Submit Verification Documents
Please make sure your student ID number is included on all documents. This will help ensure timely routing and processing of your verification documents.
Do not submit documents containing social security numbers or other sensitive information through email.
In an effort to protect your sensitive data, please do not submit W2's or tax forms to our general email. All verification documents and forms can be safely submitted electronically using our Verification Document Upload Form.
