What is Verification for Federal Title IV Funds?

Required by the U.S. Department of Education, verification is the process of confirming information submitted on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid for various Federal Title IV Funds, including Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loans. Student applicants should be aware that this federal regulation requires them to submit tax transcripts and other requested information to South Hills School before processing of student loan applications and/or the awarding of funds. Students must submit the required information to complete the verification process. For questions in regard to verification, please contact our Financial Aid office.
