Verification of Income Data

If you are selected for the verification process, our office will send you an email and post alerts on your myUMBC account specifying the documents required.

When all necessary documentation is received, our office will compare the submitted paperwork to the information provided on the FAFSA. If there are any discrepancies, our office will make the corrections and you will receive notification if your financial aid has changed. The revised awards will be available on your myUMBC account.

Occasionally, our office must request additional documentation because the originally submitted documents do not provide all of the necessary information to complete the verification process. In these situations, you will be notified via e-mail that additional documentation needs to be submitted to our office.

Please remember to write the student’s name and Campus ID on all verification documents prior to submitting them to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. To safeguard your personal information, please do not send sensitive information, including documents with Social Security Numbers, to us via email.
