Verification

Verification is the process to confirm the information you reported on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is accurate. Financial Aid and Scholarships (SFAS) will request documentation to support the information you have reported. If your application is selected for verification, SFAS will notify you through your To Do List on MyUNT. Do not submit verification documents unless requested.

Electronic Signatures

We encourage all students and parents to sign your verification electronically for the most expediated process.

Opting out of signing your verification form electronically will require you to print out your form prior to logging out. Your form and any attached documents will not be sent electronically to UNT. Once you print and sign your form, you must submit the form to our office along with all required supporting documents containing "wet" signatures. Documents should be uploaded through our secure document uploader.

If you do not print the form before logging out of the online verification form, you will lose all entered data and will need to contact our office for assistance.
