Exclusions from Verification

Under certain circumstances a CPS selected application may be excluded from some or all of the federal verification requirements due to the following unusual circumstances including: death of the student, not an aid recipient, applicant is eligible to receive only unsubsidized student financial assistance, or post enrollment (the student was selected for verification after ceasing to be enrolled). With the exception of the death of the student, however, none of these exemptions excuse the university from the requirement to resolve conflicting information.

Unless there is reason to believe it’s inaccurate, FAFSA information for dependent students’ parents does not need to be verified in the following situations:
- Both of the parents are mentally incapacitated.
- They are residing in a country other than the United States and can’t be contacted by normal means
- They can’t be located because the student does not have and cannot get their contact information

Unless there is reason to believe it’s inaccurate, FAFSA information for the spouse of an independent student does not need to be verified in the following situations:
- The spouse has died
- He/she is mentally incapacitated
- He/she is residing in a country other than the United States and can’t be contacted by normal means.
- He/she can’t be located because the student does not have and cannot get his/her contact information.
