The U.S. Department of Education has established regulations to prevent fraud and abuse in the Federal Student Aid program by identifying students with unusual enrollment histories. Some students who have an unusual enrollment history have legitimate reasons for their enrollment at multiple institutions. However, such an enrollment history requires our office to review your file in order to determine future federal financial aid eligibility. If selected by the Department of Education, this must be resolved before you will be eligible to receive financial aid.
Definition of UEH
The specific pattern the Department of Education uses to select students includes those students who have received a Federal Pell Grant and/or Federal Loans at multiple institutions during the past four academic years. Once the Department of Education indicates that a student has an unusual enrollment history, the Office of Student Financial Aid must review the academic history prior to determining federal financial aid eligibility for that student. Students with an unusual enrollment history will have one of the following UEH flags and C codes on their ISIRs (Institutional Student Information Records), which is the school version of the SAR (Student Aid Report) issued by the Department of Education upon completion of the processing of your FAFSA®.
|UEH Flag Value||C Code||Comment Code||Flag Description||School Action to Resolve Flag|
|N||No||None||Enrollment pattern not unusual.||No school action required.|
|2||Yes||359||Possible enrollment pattern problem.||School must review enrollment/academic and financial aid records for past four award years.|
|3||Yes||360||Questionable enrollment pattern.||School must review enrollment/academic and financial aid records for past four award years.|
Appeal Process and What Will be Required of You
If selected, you will be notified of the requirements associated with the process. You are required to have earned academic credit at every institution where you received a Federal Pell Grant or Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized loan while attending in those relevant academic years. Our office will review your Unusual Enrollment History Form and your financial aid history at all previous institutions that you attended during the last four financial aid years (please ensure we have received all official/unofficial transcripts for those schools) and verify that academic credit was received at each institution during the relevant years. If you failed to earn academic credit at any institution where you received a federal Pell Grant or Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized loan during the relevant award years, you will need to provide a statement explaining the circumstance for credit not earned along with any relevant documentation using the Unusual Enrollment History Form. The results of the appeal will be emailed to your Hondros College of Nursing email account (or personal email account from your FAFSA® if you do not have a college email account). These decisions are final and are not appealable to the Department of Education.
