What is Verification?
Verification is the process the school uses to confirm the accuracy of data reported on a student’s FAFSA. At Franklin Pierce University this process is done online.
Why have I been selected for Verification?
Each year the U.S. Department of Education randomly selects a percentage of the University’s population to complete the Verification process.
Can a parent complete the Verification process for their child?
NO! The student is the account holder and recipient of the aid and, therefore, it is fraudulent for an individual other than the student to complete any verification tasks unless expressly stated otherwise in the Verification process.
How do I create a Verification account?
Students do not need to create an E-verification account, they access it through their campus web portal.
