2021–2022 Identity Verification and Statement of Educational Purpose

Financial Aid and Scholarship Services will request this form only if it is needed to complete your financial aid file. If this item is listed under your Financing Tasks in My ASU, your financial aid disbursement will be placed on hold.

You can view your document status on My ASU’s Finances tab. Please allow 2 to 3 business days for receipt to show in your Financing Tasks.

Purpose: The U.S. 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. You are encouraged to have this completed form notarized, but notarization is not required. 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.
