Verification

Verification is the process a school follows to confirm that the data reported by a student on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate. The federal government requires colleges and universities to verify or confirm the data reported by students and/or their parents on the FAFSA. This process consists of Minot State collecting documents used to complete the FAFSA and comparing them with the information the student provided on the FAFSA. If you are selected for verification by the Department of Education or Minot State, you must complete the verification process if you are interested in receiving federal, state and some types of institutional financial aid. 

If you are selected for verification, Minot State will send you a request for required documents by mail or to your Minot State email account. The list of required documents is also available on your To-Do list in Campus Connection. The required Verification Forms can be accessed below.

Please click on the SECURE FILEDROP button to send verification documents to the Minot State Financial Aid Office.
