2023-2024 Identity verification and statement of educational purpose

If this item is listed under your Financing Tasks in My ASU, your financial aid disbursement will be placed on hold until you provide the information requested.

Why this is needed

The Department of Education has notified ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services that you must confirm your identity and certify that the federal student aid you receive will be used only for educational purposes.


  1. Print the form below and follow the instructions provided.
  2. Note: If you make a mistake on the form, please make the correction and initial your new response.
  3. Submit the form and required documentation to ASU Financial Aid and Scholarship Services in person or by mail.
  4. Note: If you use a California notary, the notary will need to identify the type of government-issued ID that is presented to them at the time the notarization is completed.

You can view your document status on My ASU’s Finances tab. Please allow two to three business days for a receipt to show in your Financing Tasks.
