Quality Improvement (QI) and Quality Assurance (QA) are an initiative of the U.S. Department of Education to assure that the information used in awarding financial aid assistance is accurate.
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 (until the beginning of classes 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 your One.IU Student Center 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 federal tax return transcript.
In order to receive any type of federal, state, or campus-based aid, you must respond to any request for Quality Improvement or Quality Assurance documentation as soon as possible.
NOTE: 2016-2017 will be the final year for the QI and QA programs. Beginning with the 2017-2018 award year, IUPUI will confirm FAFSA information through the Department of Education's verification process.
