Each year, the federal government selects approximately 30 percent of the students to go through “Verification,” which means to verify the information which was reported on the FAFSA. Students can view all missing documents on their myHeliotrope account. Students missing documents for verification will not be awarded financial aid until those documents are provided. Failure to submit the documents within the requested time period may result in ineligibility for federal financial aid. Contact Student Financial services with any questions.

Verification Notifications

Students who have been reviewed for Verification will receive an email notification that they have been awarded and that they should view their myHeliotrope account to view their awards. Conversely, students who are still missing required documentation will be instructed to view their missing documentation.

Purchase College needs adequate time to review and process any documents submitted. Documents will not be reviewed until all missing items are provided.
