Federal Verification is a process in which Dartmouth College is required by the Department of Education to confirm the accuracy of certain data elements reported on your FAFSA. Approximately 30% of all students who file a FAFSA will be selected for this process.
Renewal students who are selected will not receive their award notice until all verification documents have been submitted. Failure to submit all requested documentation will result in the forfeiture of your federal financial aid eligibility, and your Dartmouth financial assistance will not disburse to your student account.
