Your 2014–2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for review in a process called verification. The law says that before awarding Federal Student Aid, we may ask you to confirm the information you reported on your FAFSA. To verify that you provided correct information, the Financial Aid Office at Ashford University will compare your FAFSA with the information on this worksheet and with any other required documents. If there are differences, your FAFSA information may need to be corrected. You must complete and sign this worksheet, attach any required documents, and submit the form and other required documents to the Financial Aid Office at Ashford. The
Financial Aid Office may ask for additional information. If you have questions about verification, contact the Financial Aid
Office as soon as possible so that your financial aid will not be delayed. Please make sure to complete this form in its entirety. Incomplete forms will be returned and will cause a delay in the processing of your financial aid. Submit the completed form, signed and dated, through SFA online to ensure quick and secure delivery. Use the My
Documents link on the left side of the page, and follow the instructions. You should make a copy of this worksheet for your records. If you cannot access My Documents through SFA online, submit the completed form, signed and dated, by faxing to 866.487.9735.
