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 2011-12, 2012-13, and 2013-14 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 2011-12, 2012-13, and 2013-14 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 an approval, the student will be notified in writing and it will be explained what the stipulations of the approval are. In the event of a denial, you will be notified in writing and instructed how you can regain eligibility. A student may appeal the denial of continued eligibility decision by completing the Enrollment History Appeal Form, and providing a typed letter explaining why the appeal should be approved along with applicable documentation. The appeal will be reviewed and the student will be notified in writing of the decision.
