Federal verification regulations require institutions to check the accuracy of information supplied by students applying for federal financial aid. As a result, you and your family may be asked to supply additional information in order to verify original data supplied in your application for financial aid.
Verification procedures must be completed, or you will not be eligible to receive most federal funds, including Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Work-Study, and Federal Direct Stafford Loans. Verification requirements also apply to the Fees Assistance Grant and the Ball State Grant.
The Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE) also requires that all students selected for federal verification meet those requirements before receiving funds from the Indiana Frank O'Bannon Grant, Indiana 21st Century Scholars Award, Indiana Part-Time Grant, Indiana National Guard Supplement, Child of Veterans and Officers Fee Waiver, or State of Indiana scholarship programs. State aid deadlines are November 1 for fall and April 1 for spring.
Verification requirements also apply to the Fees Assistance Grant and the Ball State Grant. Ball State's deadline for completing verification to receive campus-based aid is October 1.
Failure to respond to requests for verification or other additional information requests will jeopardize your current and future receipt of financial assistance.
