Unusual Enrollment History

The U.S. Department of Education has established regulations to prevent fraud and abuse in the Federal Pell Grant Program by identifying students with unusual enrollment histories. Students are being notified by the Department of Education that their FAFSA is flagged for Unusual Enrollment History with a comment code (C code) on their Student Aid Report (SAR). Baker College cannot pay Title IV funds to students with Unusual Enrollment History C codes until there is adequate resolution outlined by the Department of Education.

If you have received a notice from Baker College that you have a C code related to Unusual Enrollment History, the following items are needed to determine your financial aid eligibility.
