[Once the correct documents requested from your school are on file they can work on making any corrections to your FAFSA should it be needed based on this verification process.[/quote]
Herein lies the problem. How CAN the FAFSA be corrected, on an item, when that item wasn't able to be answered on the FAFSA, by virtue of the FAFSA software overriding certain portions of the FAFSA (meaning, deleting certain parts of the FAFSA that otherwise would require a response), based on income, and other criteria? How can you correct a problem that isn't a problem, in the first place?
For the record, after my 'verfication' review by the school, they (the school) submitted a 'corrected' FAFSA based on the amount of money in my bank accounts as of July 1, 2103- but the 2013/2014 FAFSA asked about information from January 1, 2012 through January 31, 2012. Here we are six months later?
None of it makes sense, other than to make the FA process more confused, so fewer people attempt it. This is definitely going to stop the huge growth of colleges that has been going on, since fewer students will be able to access financial aid. Might be a good thing- it might stop the hyperinflation of tuition?
Anyway- my advice is that if anybody wants to pursue FA, I can tell you the screws are being tightened, daily- partially due to the bankrupt country, and partially due to the escalation in defaults in students loans. Yet all the while, we are told: "Go to college!". Be persistent, detail oriented, and make it a daily task to pursue finacial aid, or you will be left out by missing some obscure requirement. I can say, for a fact, that in the past 8 months, I have spent more time on FA requests, revisions, demands, counter-demands, verifications and more verifications, and the like than I spent on taking final exams for 8 classes. Good luck!
