Note:  30% of all FAFSAs each year will be selected by the Department of Education for a process of review called verification. Database matches are performed by comparing FAFSA data with the Social Security Administration, Immigration and Naturalization Service, Selective Service System, National Student Loan Data System, and others. Students may be required to submit additional documentation to Alabama State University. If you have been selected for verification, additional documents are needed. To find out if you have been selected and what is needed, do the following:

Office of Financial Aid is pleased to announce we have established a partnership with Inceptia to expedite the federal verification process for Alabama State University. Verification Gateway (VG) from Inceptia is an online portal to guide students and parents through verification.
