Verification is a federal audit of submitted Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSAs). Approximately 30% of all FAFSA filers and 50% of low-income FAFSA filers are selected to provide additional documentation of the income information they report on the form.
FCAN’s Amy Bolick, Community Engagement and Programs Manager, was recently joined by a trio of guest presenters from National College Access Network (NCAN) —MorraLee Keller, Director of Technical Assistance; Jack Porter, Advocacy Associate; and Bill DeBaun, Director of Data and Evaluation — for a presentation about the ways FAFSA verification is affecting low-income students in Florida.
