(CD15-04, OEC15-01 dated January 23, 2015)(CD13-37, OEC13-07 dated April 26, 2013)(CD12-33, OEC12-06 dated March 15, 2012)(CD11-60/OEC11-16 dated July 12, 2011)

If the need for child care is enrollment in education or training, verify and document the participant’s enrollment. Obtain verification of the course(s)/training, the number of courses taken, and the hours and days of actual attendance. It may be necessary to obtain more than one type of documentation to verify the need. Hard copy documentation is no longer the required method of verification.

For students in a traditional education/training setting, examples of acceptable verification, as long as all needed information is included, are:

  • The Student Income Verification Form, FA-321.
  • Fee receipts.
  • Computer-generated class schedules.
  • Letter from the school on the institution’s letterhead that includes the name, title, and signature of the staff person completing the letter, as well as the facility’s phone number and address, with a fee receipt included/provided. (Use similar methods to verify required lab hours when not indicated on the student’s class schedule.)
  • Phone call to program/school

For students participating in online classes, examples of acceptable verification are:

  • Enrollment confirmation.
  • Tuition payment receipt.
  • Class syllabus.
  • Computer-generated class schedule, if available.
  • Letter from the school on the institution’s letterhead that includes the name, title, and signature of the staff person completing the letter, as well as the facility’s phone number and address, with a fee receipt included/provided. (If applicable, use similar methods to verify required lab hours when not indicated on the student’s class schedule.)
