    Individuals with disabilities can obtain this document in an

INFORMATION CONTACT.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Secretary will include on the 
applicant's Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) flags that 
will indicate that the applicant has been selected by the Secretary for 
verification and the Verification Tracking Group that the applicant has 
been placed in, which in turn indicates which FAFSA information needs 
to be verified for that applicant and, if appropriate, the applicant's 
parent(s) or spouse. The Student Aid Report (SAR) provided to the 
applicant will indicate that the applicant's FAFSA information has been 
selected for verification and direct the applicant to the institution 
for further instructions for completing the verification process.
    The following chart lists, for the 2016-2017 award year, the FAFSA 
information that an institution and an applicant and, if appropriate, 
the applicant's parent(s) or spouse, may be required to verify under 34 
CFR 668.56. The chart also lists the acceptable documentation that must 
be provided under Sec.  668.57 to an institution for that information 
to be verified.
