Applying for Financial Aid at IUPUI

Quality Improvement (QI) and Quality Assurance (QA)

Quality Improvement (QI) and Quality Assurance (QA) is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Education to assure that the information used in awarding financial aid assistance is accurate. IUPUI determines effectiveness and efficiency of the awarding process through in-depth reviews of individual applications.

Based on criteria established by internal and federal guidelines, some students are required to complete this process. If you are selected, you will receive a letter (if you are a first year freshman) or an email from IUPUI explaining the Quality Improvement (or QA) process. You may also check your “To Do” items on OneStart to determine if you have been selected for Quality Improvement. You will be required to complete a Quality Improvement Worksheet and provide appropriate documentation, such as your current year Federal Tax Returns.

In order to receive any type of federal, state, or campus-based aid, you must respond to any request for Quality Improvement documentation immediately. You must submit your Quality Improvement documentation by the priority date of July 29th, 2012, to be considered for campus based aid (Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Perkins Loan, and Federal Work Study) for the 2012/13 aid year.
