A school has students who apply and are accepted, but never end up registering for courses at the university. Verification documents are requested for all admitted students. Must these applicants still be reported to the Department of Education?
Yes. If a school requests verification of identity and high school completion status from a student, it must report the results of that request even if the student does not attend the institution. Identity Verification Results are reported in accordance with the guidance in Chapter 4 of the Application and Verification Guide volume of the FSA Handbook and the November 18, 2016, Electronic Announcement, Reminder to Report Verification Results for Verification Groups V4 and V5 to FAA Access to CPS Online.
