DHS-SAVE, Eligible Noncitizen

Beginning in May 2018, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) will give Title IV schools access to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) system. This access is being provided to schools for the purpose of submitting third step verification requests to obtain the immigration status for determining student eligibility for Title IV aid. Increasing electronic access for Title IV schools to the SAVE system is a collaborative effort by ED and DHS, designed to modernize the third step verification process. DHS’ existing paper-based process will be discontinued on May 1, 2018.
