When you Auto Package a student, the process assigns awards based on the selected packaging plan and validates all awards. Validation checks eligibility, packaging or financial aid item type rules for minimum and maximum award limits, aggregate limits, fiscal fund availability, and federal eligibility. Validation may reduce an award amount or set an award amount to zero to comply with rules and limits. After Auto Packaging, if you make no changes to the awards, you can post the awards to the award tables directly. If you do make manual changes after you Auto Package, validate all the awards (using the Validate button) to ensure the student is still eligible.
