(A) Determine the validity of information provided by students and parents regarding eligibility for state student financial aid. If the chancellor determines that eligibility data has been reported incorrectly or inaccurately, and where the chancellor determines an adjustment to be appropriate, the institution of higher education shall adjust the financial aid awarded to the student.
(B) Ensure that institutions of higher education are in compliance with the rules governing state student financial aid programs. An institution that fails to comply with the rules in the administration of any state student financial aid program shall be fully liable to reimburse the state for the unauthorized use of student financial aid funds.
