Using the correct application information in awarding federal aid to students is one of the most important things we do as aid administrators. See how the CPS and FAFSA on the Web products apply system edits to application data to detect potentially incomplete, incorrect, or inconsistent answers. You will also learn about the process the Department uses each year to decide which applicants will be selected for verification. We will conclude with the campus view through a high level overview of the Quality Analysis Tool. This software can help any school analyze its verification procedures to determine if its verification best targets the populations and data elements that impact the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and Pell eligibility of students at the school.
