Verification Process

Notification of Selection

If selected, students will be notified of the verification requirement by a comment on their SAR (Student Aid Report) and by an Official Financial Aid Notification from SMU (sent to the student's campus email address).

Also, a "To-Do list" will be created on the student's account, listing the required documents to be submitted. The list of required items can be viewed on the student's Pony Tracks page in my.SMU (log in with SMU ID, then navigate to Student Center, Financial Aid, Pony Tracks, and finally Step 2).

If institutionally selected, no comment will appear on SAR, but notification will still be sent out and "To-Do list" created.
