Verify My FAFSA

The U.S. Department of Education selects student FAFSA applications for the verification process. The verification selection can be random or because your FAFSA information was incomplete, estimated or inconsistent. If Northeast Mississippi Community College finds conflicting or discrepant information, NEMCC may also select your FAFSA for verification.

What does Verification mean?

If your FAFSA application is selected for Verification by the Department of Education or NEMCC, the Financial Aid Office is required to confirm (verify) that the information provided on the FAFSA form is accurate by obtaining additional documentation from you. If there are discrepancies, the college is also required to correct the FAFSA application and adjust financial aid eligibility accordingly.

You are now able to complete most of your outstanding Financial Aid requirements/tasks online, with secure document upload from any device and e-sign capabilities.

To get started, you must create a Verify My FAFSA account by following the steps below:
