Federal Verification

Please note: The instructions and forms on this page are only required if you were notified that your FAFSA was selected for verification.

Approximately one-third of FAFSAs filed each year are selected for Federal Verification. Verification is the process in which the U.S. Department of Education requires colleges to confirm that the data reported on your FAFSA is accurate. In addition, the U.S. Department of Education provides colleges the authority to select a student’s FAFSA for verification if the college has reason to believe the reported information may not be accurate.

Email and Voice Mail

Student Health and Counseling Services (SHACS) is dedicated to providing Grinnell College students with the highest quality of care and to protecting the privacy of student information. For these reasons, we prefer not to use email to communicate with our clients. We use email only to respond to general, non-medical/clinical questions and to send appointment reminders.  If you need to speak with your counselor or nurse, call during business hours. If he/she/zi is unavailable, leave a message with our receptionist.
