Verification Policy

Verification Policy

The U.S. Department of Education may require the Office of Financial Aid to verify the accuracy of the data submitted on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you are selected for verification, Financial Aid will notify you by email regarding your selection and you will receive an email form, or postcard from Inceptia, containing Arkansas Baptist College’s unique website link to start the verification process.

We encourage you to begin the verification process within 7 days of receiving notification from Verification Gateway to ensure you receive your financial aid award in time for payments. Failure to complete the verification process could result in the delay of your financial aid award. Please note that failure to have this process completed before the semester begins can delay you being able to move into campus housing.
