Paying for College

If You Have A Red Flag

What Are Red Flags?

If any information on your FAFSA does not match the information the federal government has on record, your FAFSA is flagged for further review.

When IPFW receives your FAFSA and loads it into our computer system, it is checked for any problems that require you to submit more information.

If any problems are found, a red flag is put on your myIPFW account and notification is sent to you. 

You can view these red flags and links to more information on the Enrollment tab in the Financial Aid Requirements Box.
