Department of Education Continues Wavier for Certain Verification Requirments for 2022-23
Released on Monday, “The Department of Education recognizes the need to continue to provide relief to millions of students and colleges facing challenges and barriers resulting from the ongoing national emergency. Therefore, we are continuing our waiver of certain verification requirements into the 2022-2023 award year. This means we are maintaining verification requirements that strictly focus on identity and fraud for the remainder of the 2022-2023 award year and waiving the remaining verification requirements.”
Chowan University maintains the discretion to select students for verification according to institutional policies, however, policies are being amended to limit the selection to offer relief to students and families.
“The ability to waive certain verification requirements is a welcomed relief to Chowan and her students,” shared Ruth Casper, Director of Financial Aid. “The Financial Aid Office will be working to contact students and families in the coming days with updated award letters.”
This waiver begins effective immediately and applies for the remainder of the 2022-2023 FAFSA processing and verification cycle. For more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 252-398-6535 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
