Child Support Paid – We can accept a statement from the student for child support paid even for V6. We can require additional information if it doesn’t add up. The statement, child support form, and ISIR all need to match.
Low Income Forms – CFA is more laid back with these forms now but they must have complete sentences on them. It needs to be more than just one or two words.
CLA – Please make sure the CLA is the new version. It will fail audit unless it is the new one.
16-17 UEH – We need college transcripts for years 12/13, 13/14, 14/15, and 15/16 in the file. This is for both loans and grants in these years.
Pending 16-17 ISIR Files– Please do not submit a file for audit pending a 16-17 ISIR correction. We must have the final in order to pass audit.
FAME Corrections for 16-17 – FAME corrected an error with all 16/17 ISIRs. Please check any 16/17 ISIRs you have pulled before today to check the information on them. Some came through with missing answers and amounts. You may need to print the ISIR again if this has happened.
Gender Question on ISIR ***UPDATE*** – If a female student doesn’t answer the gender question, we can correct it as an FP if we have a valid ID in the file. We do, however, have to wait for the new ISIR to come in before submitting to audit. The ISIR does not need to be selected for verification in order to fix it, we only need a valid ID.
POG Date – A POG is okay as long as it has a month and a year. So the only time we will need to get CFA approval is if the POG only has a year on it without a month.
MPN and Info Sheet – If the references relationship on the MPN doesn’t match the info sheet then we are fine.
Last Names – When a student has dual last names but only 1 on the ISIR and documentation, we can accept it as long as the ISIR isn’t C Coded. We are also able to accept it if the students maiden name is on the ISIR but the SSC has the new married last name if it’s not C Coded. (Per Ryan P.)
Independent Student Based on being Pregnant – We need a letter from the student stating when they expect to have the baby and that they “plan on providing for the child” once they give birth.
Gender Question on ISIR – If a female student doesn’t answer the gender question, we can correct it as an FP if we have a valid ID in the file. We do, however, have to wait for the new ISIR to come in before submitting to audit.
