Professional Judgements & Verification Codes – Ryan P. confirmed that professional judgments and dependency overrides will not change a verification status when correction is made by the institution. This means that if the ISIR we have is not selected prior to the PJ/DO, we do not run the risk of having the new ISIR come back selected.
Completers and Master’s Students – Rather than only requiring proof in the financial aid file, we need to require transcripts and approval from the registrar’s office that the transcripts provided do meet our start requirements.
Screenshot of ISIR Corrections – When submitting a file to audit with a pending ISIR correction, please include the screenshots of the corrections and the EFC page of FAME.
Removing SSI income form 16-17 ISIR (UPDATE) – If the student removes it themselves, there is no need to get proof of non-filing for the 16-17 ISIR (per Ryan Perry). Ryan P. confirmed that if a student removes income from their FAFSA themselves, there is no need to prove the non-filing tax status unless there is a concern. If the planner removes the income, then we will need the non-filing tax status proof. This is ONLY for the 16-17 ISIR.
