Verification Process

Effective May 18, 2022, the U.S. Department of Education has waived the federal verification process for students selected for the Standard verification process for the 2022-23 year.  This is temporary and the verification process is expected to resume for the 2023-24 year.

We have waived any missing verification documents for students selected for the Standard verification process.  Students selected for the Custom or Aggregate verification process will need to provide the financial aid office the Identity & Statement of Educational Purpose, included in the Custom and Aggregate verification worksheets.

Please review your financial aid portal for any outstanding documents required for your aid application. 

If you have any questions or concerns about your verification status, please contact Andy Korenewsky by phone at 413.559.6044 or via email at

This information is for those students who are selected for the verification of their FAFSA data. Students can view their Student Aid Reports, which will notify them if they are selected for verification. Hampshire College will also notify you. If you are selected for verification, the topics below may be of help to you.
