  1. Prospective and returning cadets may be selected by the Department of Education for verification.  As of the 2017-2018 academic year, Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) has been contracted to complete all financial aid verification services on behalf of the Virginia Military Institute. All verification documentation should be submitted through its KHEAA Verify portal.

    Students selected for verification must first register to establish their "MyKHEAA" account. Parents of dependent students must also register in order to establish a separate user ID and password to sign electronic documents. To get started, please visit the KHEAA Verify portal, register, and begin to monitor your verification process today.

    If you do not have access to the internet or have questions specific to the verification process, please contact KHEAA for the required documents or answers to your questions.
