Unusual Enrollment History

Beginning in 2013–2014, the U. S. Department of Education will review the enrollment history for all students filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Any student who is identified as having attended multiple colleges/universities in recent years and who received a federal Pell Grant will be flagged for a special review called, "unusual enrollment history" (UEH). This means that the schools receiving the flagged FAFSAs are required to review the student's enrollment history and whether they earned passing grades at the previous schools. Students may be required to provide official academic transcripts from all colleges and universities attended during the review period. The transcripts will be reviewed to determine if the student is eligible to continue receiving financial aid. If a student is denied federal student aid, he/she may appeal the decision by contacting the Office of Financial Aid.

Students who are flagged (selected for UEH review) will be notified on their FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR). The Office of Financial Aid will also send notification via EMU e-mail if official transcripts are required.
