Some students will have their FAFSAs selected for a process called verification. This means that the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships must determine the accuracy of the data you reported on your FAFSA.
If your FAFSA is selected for verification by the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships at Ohio University, we will notify you and tell you exactly what documents and information we need from you and your family in order to complete verification.
Because of our participation in the Quality Assurance Program, we do not want families to send us documents for verification unless we specifically request them--even if your Student Aid Report indicates you were selected for verification by the federal processor.
Sometimes we award a student financial aid before verification is completed. If so, your award is tentative pending the completion and outcome of verification.
