Verification and File Review

The U.S. Department of Education requires colleges to carefully review all student aid applications. Further, the College is required to review all applications for conflicting information. This is called file review.

Additionally, students may be selected for verification by the Department of Education due to incomplete information, inconsistent information, or random selection. If a student is selected for verification or found to have conflicting information, the student will be notified by the Berkeley College Financial Aid Department and will be required to submit additional forms and/or documents in order for the College to confirm whether the information reported on the FAFSA is correct.
