HPU is required to review the accuracy of the self-reported information provided on the FAFSA for selected applicants. The Department of Education selects certain student applications for school review. If you have an asterisk next to the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) figure on your Student Aid Report (SAR), you have been selected for verification. Please read through your SAR comments to see if other issues may require resolution.
Students will be notified by email of required verification forms for you and/or your parents. We will require that you submit a verification worksheet and may request verification of your federal tax information or any other documents we deem necessary to resolve any discrepancies. If tax information is requested, click here for instructions on how to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) or to request a tax transcript.
If there are differences between your application information and your financial documents, we may need to make corrections to your FAFSA and these changes may affect your award amounts and eligibility.
Any student selected for verification is assigned a verification group (V1, V2, V3, V4 or V5) . The forms for each category are listed below.
*All verification forms require a handwritten signature; electronic signatures are not accepted. Verification worksheets and documents, may be submitted by fax or email.
