Proof of Identity and Statement of Educational Purpose

This document is required for us to verify your identity as part of a process called Verification. The request for this document doesn't mean that you did anything wrong, it just means that the Federal Government needs us to verify your identity before we can award you federal aid.

There are two ways of completing your Proof of Identity/Statement of Educational Purpose (SEP form).
The first option is to make an appointment at any Herzing location to complete the form in person.
The second option is to take the document to a notary. You will fill out the first full page in front of the Notary and they will complete the second page. If you use this option, you will need to mail the original to Herzing University at the address at the bottom of page 2.
