a. Eligibility was based on verification of satisfactory immigration status by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).

b. Eligibility was approved to meet timely processing guidelines, but no INS response to a request for verification of immigration status has been received.

c. Eligibility was approved to meet timely processing guidelines, but the reasonable opportunity period for alien applicants to provide documentation of their alien status had not expired.
