About Verification

About 30% of all FAFSA filers are selected for verification. FAFSA verification is a process that requires schools to collect documentation to check the accuracy of the FAFSA information. FAFSAs are selected for verification for many reasons and being selected does not mean that you did anything wrong.

What happens if my FAFSA is selected for verification?

If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you will be required to submit additional documentation to Wayne State College in order for your financial aid to be awarded. Once we receive all the required documents, we will complete your FAFSA verification review. If any discrepant information is found, we will correct your FAFSA and resubmit it to the CPS for reprocessing.

How are FAFSA records chosen for verification?

FAFSAs can be selected as they are processed at CPS (the U.S. Department of Education’s FAFSA Central Processing System) or selected by Wayne State College based on specific selection criteria. If "selected for verification" by CPS, the selected FAFSA has already been assigned to a verification group when received by Wayne State College.

How will I be notified if my FAFSA has been selected for verification?

Wayne State College will notify students via their Wayne State College email when their FAFSA is selected for verification.

How do I get into Wildcats Online to view my “My To Dos”?

  1. Log in to ecampus.wsc.edu.
  2. Under "Online Resources," access Wildcats Online.
  3. Once in Wildcats Online, click on the “Financial Aid” tab.
  4. On the right, there is a section called “My To Dos."

What documentation is required to complete FAFSA verification?

Students will have specific items in their “My To Dos” on their Wildcats Online that will identify the appropriate form(s) required for their verification. As we receive the required documents, we will update your information and the items will no longer show in the “My To Dos” on Wildcats Online.

How can I submit the required verification documents?

Verification documents can be submitted using any of the following options:

  • Email: sfs@wsc.edu
  • Fax: 402-375-7067
  • Mail: Wayne State College, Student Financial Services, 1111 Main St., Wayne, NE  68787

Is there a deadline for submitting and completing the verification?

There is not a definite deadline; however, it is in the student’s best interest to complete the FAFSA verification process as soon as possible.

Can I elect to not complete the verification process?

Yes, you can elect to NOT complete the FAFSA verification process. However, making this decision means that you forfeit access to all federal aid, need-based aid, and Wayne State College’s institutional need-based aid. 

What if I have questions about this process?

Contact the Student Financial Services Office by email at sfs@wsc.edu or by phone at 1-800-228-9972 ext. 7229.
