*Verification is a process required by the state and federal government that is intended to improve the accuracy of the information submitted on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the California Dream Application. College financial aid offices may not disburse federal student aid until the verification process is complete. In addition to verifying certain tax information on the federal tax return, UC Santa Cruz employs an in-depth analysis when awarding our own institutional grant funds. Your financial aid offer may be adjusted as a result of the verification process.  Federal, state, and institutional aid is most commonly adjusted due to factors such as the reported number in the household/college, untaxed income (retirement contributions, foreign income exclusion, asset depreciation, Social Security benefits, etc.), investment net worth, and tax filing status.
