Does being unverified as a citizen affect my financial aid awards?
So on my FAFSA there was a message saying my citizenship couldn't be verified by the SSA. I know that I have to update my citizenship at the SSA office in order to fully complete my FAFSA, but I was wondering if I need to also prove citizenship with my applied colleges in order to receive financial aid awards or packages? If so, is there any way for me to prove citizenship without physically going to each school's financial aid office? Most of them are out-of-state for me, and I really want to compare the packages before I fully commit to one school.5 replies
