What happens next?
When selected for Unusual Enrollment, the Office of Student Financial Assistance will place an item on the student’s myUCF To-Do List notifying that student. At that time, the office will first review the student’s academic records already on file with the university. In addition, the office will review the student’s Federal Pell Grant or Federal Direct Stafford loan disbursements at multiple institutions over the past four award years. For example, for the 2015-2016 aid year, the office will review a student’s enrollment history during the 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 aid years. By reviewing all of the student’s academic records, the office will determine if for each of the previously attended institutions, whether academic credit was earned during the award year in which the student received Pell Grant or Stafford loan funds. Academic credit is considered to have been earned if the academic records show that the student completed any credit hours or clock hours.
During the initial review period, a selected student is not required to submit any documents to the office. If, however, the Office of Student Financial Assistance cannot accurately determine a student’s enrollment history with the information on file, the office will place a second item on the student’s myUCF To-Do list notifying that student that the office will need additional documentation. At this time, the student will be required to provide proof of academic credit at any institution the student received Federal Pell Grant or Federal Direct Stafford loan while in attendance during the relevant academic/award years.
