Student Financial Aid Handbook, 2001-2002. Application and Verification Guide.
Department of Education, Washington, DC. Student Financial Assistance.
This publication is intended for financial aid administrators and counselors who are helping students in the initial phases of the student aid process as they file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), verify the information they submit, and make corrections and changes to FAFSA information. The material in this guide was part of the Student Eligibility volume of the "Student Financial Aid Handbook" in the past, but this year it has been published separately in response to user interest. The first chapter, "The Application Process: FAFSA to ISIR" (Institutional Student Information Record), contains information on the electronic and paper versions of the FAFSA. "Filling Out the FAFSA," chapter 2, contains step-by-step information for filling out the form, from general information to signature requirements. "Verification," chapter 3, discusses verification requirements for FAFSA information. Chapter 4, "Corrections, Updates, and Adjustments," reviews submitting corrections and updates as needed. For this school year, only minor changes have been made in the areas of application and verification, but there have been changes in the FAFSA itself. The most notable changes have been the addition of a new worksheet and revisions to the drug conviction question. (SLD)
