If your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for federal verification by the U.S. Department of Education, you will need to complete a verification form and may need to submit tax information to our office. You will be notified on your Student Aid Report (emailed to you by the U.S. Department of Education) and by the Financial Aid Office if your FAFSA is selected.

The Doane Financial Aid Office will send you (the student) the verification form that needs to be completed and returned to our office.

You can receive an estimated financial aid award notification without submitting the required information; however, your financial aid award will not be finalized and funds will not disburse until we complete the verification review.

You must have your verification review completed at least 30 days prior to the end of the session or academic year/period during which you are enrolled. This allows sufficient time for our office to process and disburse the financial aid within the timeframe permitted under Title IV regulations and University policy.

The Department of Education has changed the tax information requirements for students selected for federal verification. For detailed information on the requirements and deadlines, click on the link below for the academic year in which you are applying for financial aid.
