  • New PCE in ARM – The PCE still needs to show proof that it was sent to the student. In the future, when the student can sign the PCE, we can accept the signed PCE as proof. Until then, we need to have the email screenshot like always.
  • Conflicting Household Size on ISIR – As per Ryan Perry, we do not need to correct this unless it’s selected for verification. For example, student answers yes to married, yes to children, and yes to dependents but only lists 3 in the household. If it is not selected to verify this then CFA will not question it. If the student has dependency issues then we’ll want to check with CFA to see if they require the correction.
  • Low Income and SNAP *UPDATE* – As per Ryan Perry, we can use the statement on the low income form as proof of SNAP for verification as long as there is not a dependency issue that would require proof and as long as it is not V6. Also, the dollar amount is not required or does not need to be exact in the statement. However, if the student/planner wants to use the LIE as the statement required from the student on SNAP, it must follow the statement requirements for selected ISIR which SNAP is listed and must include years and amounts. (V1, V4, V5, V6)

  • Business Income – If there is nothing in the file showing the student had business income, then we do not need to complete a business income statement. If business income is on tax transcripts or the student mentions it on the low income and/or V6 form, then we will need a business income statement.
  • Pending Loans – If academic and award year end dates have passed in COD then the pending loans do not need to be cancelled.
  • Pending Pell – If Pending Pell in COD is going to affect their Pell eligibility with us then it needs to be cancelled.
  • Low Income and SNAP – As per Ryan Perry, we can use the statement on the low income form as proof of SNAP for verification as long as there is not a dependency issue that would require proof and as long as it is not V6. Also, the dollar amount is not required or does not need to be exact in the statement (only need amount for V6 and dependency issues).

  • Enrollment Wizard – A while back, we changed our process slightly, adjusting the timing of when we run the enrollment wizard. By delaying this process, we found out that the student does not have the Orientation Class loaded in Canvas. This is preventing them from logging in and getting a feel for how classes will work.
    From this point forward, please run the enrollment wizard as part of your “Awards Out” criteria.
  • Shared Drive – Use the shared drive! This is extremely important for several reasons. Erin brought up another great reason, they use it when they need to send something to CFA and it makes it easier for them. PLEASE use it!
  • Overlapping Loan Period – If NSLDS and COD show an end date for loans that would make it an overlapping loan period, but the loans have all been cancelled/zeroed out, we treat it like normal, not a 4 or 8-month overlap. If the loans have been cancelled then there is no loan period to deal with
  • SNAP and Adding to ISIR – If we have agency proof of SNAP for a student is selected for verification – requiring that we verify SNAP benefits, we DO NOT require a statement to accompany the agency proof. The FP can make the correction to that ISIR with the agency proof. (Ryan Perry – 5/2/16)
