Verification is a requirement of the financial aid programs and is governed by federal and state regulations. Approximately 30 percent of the applicants are selected for verification. Those who are selected are informed of their selection via the Student Aid Report. Rowan University’s financial aid office will notify the selected individuals of any required documents.
An applicant selected for verification must submit all required documentation within sixty days after his last date of attendance for the academic year in question. Failure to comply with this will result in the denial of aid. Student loans will not be certified and no federal or state financial aid funds will be disbursed to a student that has been selected for verification until such process has been completed.
