Upon receipt of your FAFSA by the Federal Student Aid Processor, some of the information on your FAFSA will be checked with federal agencies to confirm that you meet basic eligibility requirements. The following student eligibility criteria are checked:
Social Security number and citizenship status with the Social Security Administration
Selective Service registration with the Selective Service System, if required
Eligible non-citizenship status with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Veteran Status with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs
Default, disability discharge, bankruptcy, aggregate loan history statuses for federal student loans and overpayment status for federal student grants.
The Office of Student Financial Assistance must also review other eligibility requirements, which include, but are not limited to:
Satisfactory Academic Progress
Enrollment at other college (unusual enrollment history)
If any of these items come up as discrepant, the Office of Student Financial Assistance is required to resolve the issue. This may require the Office of Student Financial Assistance to follow up with you to request documentation to resolve any of the eligibility issues referenced above.
You will be sent an email directing you to review your revised financial aid awards by logging into myMU and accessing your financial aid records when there are any changes as a result of verification.
