The institutional Quality Assurance Program was designated by the U.S. Department of Education to assure accuracy in the administration of federal financial aid. The long term goal is to simplify the application process, improve and expedite the financial aid delivery process and reduce the amount of documentation families must submit in order to receive financial aid.
Students are selected through a computer-generated sample when FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) records are received. Capital University has carefully analyzed its student population to determine which areas reported on the FAFSA appear to be most problematic. A student's FAFSA record will be selected by reviewing those specific areas for potential errors.
Students who are selected for the Federal Quality Assurance review must provide the requested documentation to receive federal funds (Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants, Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Nursing Loan, Federal Plus Loan and Federal Stafford Loans). The student signature on the FAFSA signifies agreement to provide proof of application information to Capital's Financial Aid Office.
The Federal Verification process is required by the Department of Education. Schools are required to collect and maintain specific documentation on selected FAFSA records before disbursing federal funds.
Students selected for Federal Verification will be notified by Capital as to what documents are needed. Some of the problems that can cause a FAFSA record to be selected are:
Capital University will notify you as to what documentation is needed if you are selected for Federal Verification.
The Department of Education understands that a family's circumstances can change after filing their FAFSA and that these changes may affect a family's ability to pay educational costs. Financial aid administrators use "Professional Judgment" to evaluate a family's special circumstances on a case-by-case basis. Additional documentation is required to support any changes made to a student's financial aid eligibility.
