Verification is a process in which the U.S. Department of Education requires schools to collect documents, in order to check the accuracy of the information submitted on the FAFSA. Schools are prohibited from awarding financial aid, until the Verification process is complete.
You MUST wait 5 days after filing your FAFSA form before creating your Verification account.
Since the U.S. Department of Education randomly selects FAFSA’s for Verification, you must create an online Verification Account, at Northwest Community College
After your account has been created you will immediately see any forms that must be completed.
Follow the instructions and once you have completed all requirements click on the Finish button.
We will review your documents and your Verification account will alert you if there is any more information we need.
Please respond quickly to any text message or email from Verification so that your application is not held up.
Important note – DO NOT SEND YOUR INFORMATION BY EMAIL TO US. Always login to your Verification account and only submit your forms there.
Go to the next step.
