For a verification hold, the student may need to supply the Financial Aid Office with certain documents to disburse their aid. They should log in to WebAdvisor, click ‘My Documents’ and see if there are forms needed to disburse the aid. If the student needs to submit a federal verification worksheet, it can be found at www.niagara.edu/financialaid. Click 'FAQ,' 'Docs & Info,' and then 'Documents & Links,' and locate the correct form on the right-hand side. The student should print the “dependent worksheet” if they are a dependent of their parents or print the “independent worksheet” if they are an independent student. If they or their parents need to complete the IRS data retrieval, they would go back to www.fafsa.ed.gov and make a correction to the FAFSA. The address must be an exact match to what is on the tax forms.
