Section: Discretionary Verification

When a student's application is selected for verification, he or she
must provide documentation for the items discussed in Chapter Two,
"Required Verification Items and Acceptable Documentation." You
may also require these applicants to verify any additional data
elements on the application, as you deem appropriate.

You have full discretion, therefore, as to which applicants must
provide documentation for any of the additional data elements and
what constitutes acceptable documentation. This chapter discusses

be used and provides suggested methods of verifying specific items.
