Why do I have to complete the verification process?
Every year the U. S. Department of Education selects a percentage of FAFSAs for an accuracy check called verification. If your application is selected for verification, you will need to submit certain information to allow your FAFSA to be checked for accuracy before any Federal Student Aid can be awarded.
What do I do next?
KHEAA completes the verification process for the University of Montevallo (UM). If you are selected for verification, you will receive an email notification from KHEAA and UM on how to proceed. Much of the information can be submitted electronically to KHEAA, making the process easier and more convenient for students and parents.
What am I required to do during the verification process?
- Go to MyKHEAA.com.
- “Sign In” with the student’s My KHEAA ID and password or “Register” if you are a first-time user. Parents of dependent students must also “Register” an account at MyKHEAA.com.
- After signing in, click on “KHEAA Verify,” then “Student Worksheet.”
- Complete and e-sign the Student Worksheet. Submit, along with any other verification documents to KHEAA Verify. Parents of dependent students must also e-sign the Student Worksheet.
- Monitor your My KHEAA account weekly and submit any missing or additional requested information to KHEAA Verify as soon as possible. Your KHEAA verification requirement will update to “Satisfied” on your ForUM portal once your FAFSA verification has been completed.
- If KHEAA Verify has to make corrections to your FAFSA, you and UM will receive a reprocessed FAFSA.
- A few days after verification is complete and all other requirements are “Satisfied” on your ForUM portal, you should receive an award notification that will be sent to your ForUM email.
Where do I submit verification documents?
Submit all verification documents to KHEAA Verify rather than the Student Aid office at UM.
P.O. Box 4048
Frankfort, KY 40602
The Student Worksheet should be completed and signed electronically at MyKHEAA.com. Other documentation may be faxed, mailed, or submitted through KHEAA’s document upload feature. **Please include your UM student ID on all documents.
Are there deadline dates?
All verification documents should be received by KHEAA by August 1 of the award year to guarantee a student will be awarded before the start of the fall semester and by December 15 of the award year to guarantee that a student will be awarded before the start of the spring semester. UM does NOT award Federal Student Aid until the verification process is complete. Don’t wait! Complete Verification as soon as possible!
