Financial Aid: My FAFSA was selected for Verification. How long does this process take?

The financial aid verification process differs for each student. Once all required documentation is submitted to the Financial Aid office (and items are removed from the To Do list in MyUMUC), applications are typically reviewed the following week.

During this review process, the Financial Aid office will contact a student if additional information or clarification is required. If corrections are not needed and the Financial Aid office is able to verify a student's file based on the information provided, financial aid will typically be awarded in 2-3 days.

In some cases, the Financial Aid office will need to update a student's FAFSA based on the information provided. In this scenario, the University submits corrections to the Department of Education, which typically takes 3-5 days for processing. Once the Department of Education process is complete, the University will award financial aid in 2-3 days.
