Eligibility Status

Determining Title IV Aid Eligibility

ABAC has established policies and procedures to determine whether the documentation obtained supports the student’s explanation and demonstrates that the student did not enroll for the purpose of receiving a Title IV credit balance payment. ABAC must document the decision in the student’s file.

Eligibility Approved

If the documentation supports an assertion that the student did not enroll in multiple schools/programs solely to obtain the credit balance payment, the student is eligible for additional Title IV funds. ABAC must document its determination in the student’s file and process the student’s Title IV aid accordingly.

Eligibility Denied

The student loses eligibility for all Title IV aid if both of the following are true: (1) The student did not earn academic credit at one or more of the prior schools; (2) After reviewing a student’s submitted UEH Appeal Form, ABAC determines that the documentation fails to disprove that the student enrolled in multiple programs solely to obtain the credit balance payment.

ABAC must document its determination in the student’s file and provide the student with an opportunity to question and appeal the decision. The Office of Financial Aid will also provide students with information about regaining eligibility.

Reinstatement of Eligibility

All students who have lost eligibility for all Title IV aid and would like to appeal for reinstatement must complete a UEH Appeal Form. If granted, students must adhere strictly to all conditions of their reinstatement.

Note: The school’s policies require that the student complete academic credit as at least a part of the basis for a UEH appeal and potential reinstatement of Title IV aid.

When students regain eligibility under these provisions, eligibility for Pell Grant and campus-based aid begins in the payment period during which the students regained that eligibility. For Direct Loans, eligibility begins with the period of enrollment during which the students regained eligibility.
