STUDENT SECONDARY CONFIRMATION POLICY AND PROCEDURES

ANHO has established the following procedures relative to the secondary citizenship confirmation process for Title IV financial aid applicants who have indicated that they are eligible non-citizens or permanent residents of the United States. If the Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) does not confirm eligible Title IV applicant status and the student submits reasonable evidence of eligible status, the college will initiate the secondary confirmation process through the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

  1. ALL STUDENTS WHO INDICATE AN ELIGIBLE STATUS, BUT WHOSE ELIGIBLE STATUS IS NOT CONFIRMED BY THE TAPE MATCH AS EVIDENCED ON THEIR COLLEGEAL STUDENT INFORMATION RECORD (ISIR) OR STUDENT AID RECORD (SAR) MUST BE GIVEN A COPY OF THESE PROCEDURES.

  2. Students have 30 days from the date the college receives the ISIR/SAR or 30 days from the student's receipt of the Student Secondary Confirmation Policy and Procedures (whichever is later) to submit documentation for consideration of eligible non-citizen status.

  3. Failure to submit the information by the deadline prevents the college from disbursing any Title IV funds or certifying the student as eligible for any Title IV funds.

  4. The college will not make the decision regarding “eligible non-citizen” status without the student having theopportunity to submit documentation supporting a claim of eligibility.

  5. The financial aid staff will be responsible for collecting the student’s documentation of their current immigration status. This documentation must be official documents from the USCIS/DHS. The documents must be legible and demonstrate the student’s latest status with USCIS / DHS.

  6. The college will initiate secondary confirmation within 10 business days of receiving both the output documents (ISIR /SAR) and the student’s immigration status documents.

  7. Once the appropriate documents are received, the financial aid staff will complete Form G-845
    1. Each item on the top half of the form must be completed
    2. The student’s alien registration number (A#) is entered in Box 1.
    3. Box 5 must have the 15 digit DHS verification number that is printed on ISIR/SAR on page 3 top right hand corner. USCIS/DHS will not process the G-845 without that number.
    4. “Education Grant/Loans/Work Study” must be entered in Box 8.
    5. At the bottom of Box 8, write “SSN” in the space marked “Other” and the student’s SSN in the space next to it.
    6. The Financial Aid Administrator’s Name should be used as the submitting official and the college’s name as the submitting agency.
