Verification

As part of the Financial Aid Process, a student may be selected for Verification. This is a random selection by the federal processor, or Norwich University may also select additional files to verify. If a student is selected for verification, it means that Financial Aid  must collect certain documents to verify information supplied on the FAFSA form is correct. Once the FAFSA form is received by Norwich University, you will receive a letter indicating the documents needed from you in order for us to complete the verification process. These documents usually include IRS Tax Transcripts, W-2 forms, and the Verification Worksheet. Other documents may be needed as well. Examples of additional documents include, but are not limited to, proof of child support received or paid, schedules from your tax return or proof of other untaxed income. You will always be notified via letter, phone call, or email of documents that are needed. It is important that these documents are turned in as soon as possible. No aid will be disbursed to your tuition account until the documents are received and your file has been verified. Verification requires that the University verify that the following information supplied on the FAFSA is correct:

  • Household Size
  • Number in College
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
  • Child support paid
  • Adjusted Gross Income
  • US income tax paid
  • Education credits
  • Untaxed IRA distributions
  • Untaxed pensions
  • IRA deductions
  • Tax exempt interest
  • Income earned from work

If, during the verification process any amounts previously reported on the FAFSA need to be changed, Norwich University will make those corrections and send them electronically to the federal processor. Students are notified when changes are made  by the federal processor. If these changes result in a change in award eligibility, students are sent a new financial aid award letter. It is a federal crime to deliberately falsify any information on the FAFSA form in order to receive federal financial aid inappropriately. Ifit is determined that tampering with FAFSA information occurred deliberately, the Office of Financial Aid is required to inform the Office of the Inspector General per the institution's Program Participation Agreement.
