Verification Forms

Some applications for Federal Student Aid are selected for a process called verification. Verification is used to confirm the information provided on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was correctly entered. FAFSAs are selected for verification for many reasons and being selected does not mean that you did anything wrong.

If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you will be required to submit additional documentation to UNK in order for your financial aid to be awarded. UNK will notify you via email and on your MyBLUE “To Do" section to let you know the type(s) of additional documentation that will be required. Note: If you have not been contacted by the UNK Financial Aid Office it is likely that your application has not been selected. A review of the "To Do" section on MyBLUE will confirm if any documents have been requested for verification.

You can expect the processing of your verification paperwork to take up to two weeks from the date you turn in your complete documentation to the Office of Financial Aid. Note: all requested documents must be received in order to have your file reviewed. Please also be aware that the UNK Office of Financial Aid experiences seasonal changes in volume which may affect expected processing times.

We recommend that you complete verification as soon as possible so you can be awarded in a timely manner. Please be aware that you will not be offered aid until your file is completed. As a result, you may be negatively impacted due to funding availability the longer you wait to submit your documents.
