Unusual Enrollment History (UEH)
Beginning for the 2013-14 academic year, the U.S. Department of Education began evaluating the Pell Grant disbursement history for all students who completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in an effort to identify potential instances of fraud or abuse. As a result, some students who attended multiple colleges or universities during the 2010-11, 2011-12, and 2012-13 academic years have been selected for further review. This requires the Financial Aid Office to examine your enrollment history and determine your eligibility to receive future federal financial aid.
Students selected for the Unusual Enrollment History review process may be required to complete an Enrollment History Verification Form and submit unofficial transcripts for all schools they attended during the 2010-11, 2011-12, and 2012-13 academic years. Students who failed to earn credit or clock hours at one or more of these schools during the time period indicated must also provide a written statement explaining why credit was unearned and supply, if applicable, supporting third party documentation. Once all requested documents are received, the evaluation process will determine if the student attends an institution long enough to receive title IV credit balance funds, leaves without completing the enrollment period, enrolls at another institution, and repeats the pattern of remaining just long enough to collect another title IV credit balance without having earned any academic credit.
Following evaluation by the Financial Aid Office, students will receive a notification that their continued eligibility has been approved or denied. In the event of a denial, after successfully completing one or more academic credits in accordance with the academic plan stipulations described in the denial letter, a student may appeal the denial of continued eligibility decision by completing the Enrollment History Appeal Form, providing a copy of their most recent grade transcripts, and providing a typed letter explaining why the appeal should be approved.
