Tips to remember while verifying your FAFSA information:
- Be sure to read all the selections thoroughly and select the option that best describes your situation.
- Depending on the device you are using to complete your verification, you may only be able to see limited options. If you don’t see a scroll bar to view more options, use arrows to view the hidden options.
- You can upload documents in pdf or jpg formats. So you can use a mobile device to upload more than one file.
- If you don’t e-sign the document, you will need to download the document, print and
sign, then take a picture or scan in the document to upload.
Be sure to upload all documents as jpg or pdf images. You can "Add pages" when uploading documents.
