Latest from FSA: Changes to 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 Verification Requirements

January 10, 2019

FSA recently announced new flexibilities that can be used as part of institutions’ verification procedures. These changes are being incorporated to reduce burden on students and families that have difficulty in obtaining documentation needed to verify their Free Application for Federal Student Aid/Institutional Student Information Record (FAFSA/ISIR) information.

The flexibilities noted by FSA include details on:

  • Income Tax Return
  • Verification of Nonfiling
  • Nontax Filers
  • Extension Filers
  • Additional Documentation Requirements

These flexibilities, which can be seen in FSA’s announcement, are effective as of FSA’s announcement and apply to both the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 FAFSA processing and verification cycles.
