  • 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.

  • V6 – Please submit V6 packet (ISIR, V6 Checklist, Supporting Docs) to the auditors, prior to submitting the file for audit. If a file with V6 is submitted without the auditor approval, it will be sent back.
