FAFSA Rejection and Verification Document

Occasionally a student's FAFSA will be rejected or colleges will ask the student to verify their FAFSA information; the student will receive instructions directly from the college. Here is an additional resource to assist students with their rejection or verification status.

These in-person trainings will teach participants how to utilize the “Realizing the College Dream” activities to help increase college attendance among low-income, first-generation students with:

  • Hands-on activities and interactive workshops about planning and paying for college
  • Experiences that challenge students to see themselves in college
  • Eye-opening information about the economic value of college
