Financial Aid Verification

Verification is the process in which the Financial Aid Department reviews the data reported by the student/parent on the student's FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

What Can Students Expect?

Students will receive an email in their Lone Star College email account if they are selected for verification. Students are encouraged to submit the requested documentation as quickly as possible to avoid delays.

The U.S. Department of Education selects approximately 30% of all aid applicants for verification. Eligibility cannot be determined until the Verification process is completed.
