What is verification?
Verification is the process SCAD uses to confirm that the data reported on your FAFSA is accurate.
How do I know if I’ve been selected for verification?
Certain students are selected by the federal government for this process and you will be notified via SCAD email if you are required to provide specific documentation to complete the verification process. Notification also appears on your Student Aid Report (SAR).
What will I need to provide to complete verification?
You will have specific requirements listed in your Financial Aid Requirements channel in MySCAD. Any forms that are needed can be found at www.scad.edu/verification
What happens after I submit all required documentation?
Once you submit all required documents, it may take up to two weeks for financial aid to complete the verification review process. If there are no discrepancies between the information on your FAFSA and the information you supplied, your financial aid will be processed and you will receive an award letter.
Can I receive financial aid without completing verification?
Financial aid is not awarded, or if already awarded, will not be disbursed, until verification is completed. If verification cannot be completed before the end of the quarter, you could lose eligibility for some types of financial aid for that quarter.
To learn more about verification, visit www.scad.edu/verification or contact your student success adviser.
