Overview 1-1

Preface
The Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) Technical Reference is designed to meet the reference needs of programmers and data processing staff. The Department of Education (ED) provides two types of software to EDE participants: EDExpress for Windows and EDconnect.

EDExpress for Windows
EDExpress is used for processing student financial aid. By using EDExpress, financial aid administrators (FAAs) can import Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) data, track documents, create student aid packages, originate loans, Pell awards, and track disbursements for Pell and Direct Loans. Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) correction entry functionality through EDExpress is accomplished using an interface with FAA Access to CPS Online, utilizing embedded browser technology within EDExpress. You submit the data through the Web interface and processed results are returned to your Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) mailbox. To enroll for access to the FAA Access to CPS Online Web site, go to the SAIG Enrollment Web site at FSAWebenroll.ed.gov. You can incorporate electronic FAFSA and correction functionality into your institutional system. This technical reference provides sufficient information for you to develop your own software or to develop software bridges between your own systems and EDExpress and some Web site functionality provided by ED for sending and receiving FAFSA data. The processing steps for your own software remain essentially the same as the EDExpress processing steps. This technical reference includes information about record layouts, required edits, print assistance, and reject messages that are applicable for electronic FAFSAs, ISIRs, electronic corrections, and signature records.

EDconnect
EDconnect software is used for sending and receiving electronic files from the SAIG.

Overview 1-2

Electronic FAFSA
Submission of an electronic FAFSA by a school begins with a signed FAFSA completed by the student. The school’s FAA or authorized FAA staff can enter the data using the FAA Access to CPS Online Web site or transmit it to the Central Processing System (CPS) in a formatted ASCII file format. The CPS transmits processed FAFSA records back to the school’s destination point as ISIRs in the IDAP07OP message class. The Record Layouts section includes information on record layouts including the FAFSA Application Export Record Layout (EAPS07IN). Reject codes are found in the Processing Codes section. Procedures for handling rejected FAFSAs are located later in this section and in the EDE Processing section. The Printing section includes details on printing ISIRs.

Overview 1-3

Renewal FAFSA Process
Each year the CPS creates a Renewal FAFSA for each student who is eligible to participate in the renewal application process. The Renewal FAFSA is a tremendous time-saver for students because it carries forward most of the data provided on the prior year’s FAFSA. Students only update information that has changed and complete certain income and asset questions. For more details about the 2006-2007 renewal application process, including information on 2006-2007 enhancements and student eligibility to participate, see the 2006-2007 Renewal FAFSA Process Guide, which can be found on the Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site located at fsadownload.ed.gov, as well as on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site located at ifap.ed.gov.

Overview 1-4

Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR)
The CPS generates an ISIR in response to the following input:
• • •

FAFSAs or correction records from your school. An application or correction submitted using FAA Access to CPS Online. Electronic FAFSAs and corrections completed by another school (you will receive the resulting ISIR if your Federal School Code is listed on the transaction). Web FAFSAs or corrections using FAFSA on the Web, Spanish FAFSA on the Web, Renewal FAFSA on the Web, Spanish Renewal FAFSA on the Web, or Corrections on the Web. Paper FAFSAs or corrections to a Student Aid Report (SAR) if your Federal School Code is listed on the transaction. A post-screening transaction from the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) or the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). System-generated transactions. Student called the Federal Student Aid Information Center and had a correction made to their record, i.e. change of address, change of school, or data entry error.

• •

A destination point receives an ISIR for every school the student designates on the FAFSA, as long as the school is serviced by that destination point. The CPS also sends ISIRs to state agencies that elect to receive ISIRs for legal residents or for students indicating a school in that state. The Record Layouts section provides the ISIR Record Description/Data Dictionary record layout. The Processing Codes section includes information on reject codes, the appropriate action to take and the comment codes associated with the reject. Specifications for printing the ISIR are in the Printing section.

Electronic Corrections
Schools can submit corrections to the FAFSA data electronically. You can find the Correction Record Layout in the Record Layouts section. Submit electronic corrections in the CORR07IN message class. Valid field content specifications are found in section 4, Processing Codes. Information about adding your Federal School Code to receive electronic data, making signature corrections, and using the Correction Record Layout is located in section 2, EDE Processing.

Handling Record Level Rejected Records
If the specifications in this technical reference are not followed on a particular record, an EDE Record Level Error Report File that can be printed as an error report will be transmitted to you. (The layout is in the Record Layouts section.) The EDE Record Level Error Report Import Record Layout contains the student’s Social Security Number (SSN), the student’s name ID, transaction number, last name, first name, the Federal School Code, the SAR field number in error, an edit code, an error code, and a text explanation for the reason the record was rejected. Each field in error is reported. If the record was rejected due to an invalid value, the CPS sends the actual value of the data received from the school. When a record has more than one field in error, the student’s SSN is listed more than once in the EDE Record Level Error Import Report. See section 4, Processing Codes, for additional details about rejects. The following is a list of message classes for reporting errors: CORE07OP EAPR07OP SIGA07OP Electronic Correction Errors Electronic Application Rejects Signature Record Errors

What’s New and Changed in the EDE Technical Reference for 2006-2007
Listed below are some of the significant changes to the Central Processing System. For a complete listing, refer to the 2006-2007 Summary of Change for the Application Processing System guide. You can find this guide on ED’s Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site located at fsadownload.ed.gov, as well as on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals Web (IFAP) site located at ifap.ed.gov.

Edit Changes
The following edits are being implemented in 2006-2007 processing: Tax Filing Status Edits

Changed Description of Non-Filers – We revised the tax filing edits to classify applicants with blank tax return status, blank tax return type, and zero Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) as non-filers instead of filers.

Warning Edits

Incremented dates – We incremented year references in the following warning edits: − Date of Birth edits (updated from 09/01/89 to 09/01/90) − Year references in process date edits (incremented by one year)

Cash, Savings, and Checking Accounts is equal to Real Estate/Investment Net Worth – When parents, dependent students, or independent students report a value that is non-zero, non-blank, and is the same value for both the Cash, Savings, and Checking Accounts and the Real Estate/Investment Net Worth fields, a warning edit is set. When this warning edit is triggered, a comment prints on the Student Aid Report (SAR) asking the parents or the student to verify and, if necessary, correct the Cash, Savings, and Checking Accounts and the Real Estate/Investment Net Worth information provided on the FAFSA. − Parents who trigger this edit receive comment 121. − Dependent Students who trigger this edit receive comment 122. − Independent Students who trigger this edit receive comment 123.

Overview 1-8

Reject Edits

Date of Birth Year Incremented – We incremented the date of birth end year references in Rejects A and B: − Reject A – Date of birth year equals 1900 through 1931. − Reject B – Independent student and date of birth equals 09/01/90 or greater, and date of birth is not equal to or greater than current year.

Deleted Renewal FAFSA from Reject 2 – With the removal of the paper Renewal FAFSA we were able to remove the reference to Renewal FAFSA from Reject 2.

Multi-Year Edits

Three multi-year edits have been modified − Number of Family Members increased by two or more. Last year this edit was set for an increase of three or more from the previous year. − Total Income decreased by 30 percent or more. Last year this edit was set for a decrease of 50 percent or more from the previous year. − Taxes Paid increased by 30 percent or more and Adjusted Gross Income increased by 10 percent or less. Last year this edit was set for an increase of 50 percent or more from the previous year.

Cross-Year edits can be suppressed - FAAs can now suppress the cross-year edits that are met when they use FAA Access to CPS Online to enter application data.

ISIR Changes Refer to Section 4, Processing Codes, for the 2006-2007 ISIR Cross-Reference Table, a cumulative list of changes to the ISIR. No changes were made to the FAFSA questions for 2006-2007 and therefore no changes were made to the FAFSA data elements included on the ISIR. No new CPS data elements were added to the ISIR. There also were no field position changes to the ISIR Record Layout. Changes to the ISIR valid content are summarized below:

Global Changes

Cycle Year Updates – All dates in field names and valid content are updated.

CPS Data Element Changes

Modified Valid Content in the Following Fields

Parents’ Number of Family Members – Updated valid content value from “01 to 99” to “00 to 99.” This is not a change; there was an error in the previous technical reference. Parents’ Number in College (Parents excluded) – Updated valid content value from “1 to 9” to “0 to 9.” This is not a change; there was an error in the previous technical reference. Transaction Data Source/Type Code – Deleted valid content value “4R = Paper Renewal Application” since the paper Renewal FAFSA is no longer an input option. Application Data Source/Type Code – Deleted valid content value “4R = Paper Renewal Application” since the paper Renewal FAFSA is no longer an input option. Student’s Type of 2005 Tax Form Used? – Deleted “TeleFile” from the description for valid content value 2. Parents’ Type of 2005 Tax Form Used? – Deleted “TeleFile” from the description for valid content value 2.

Introduction
This section provides a more detailed description of the Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) process. It provides instructions for each of the individual processes within EDE including the electronic Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), Renewal FAFSA, Renewal Reminders, ISIRs, and electronic corrections.

December 2005 (2006-2007)

EDE Technical Reference

EDE Processing 2-3

Electronic FAFSA
The electronic FAFSA process allows destination points to enter FAFSA data and send it to the Central Processing System (CPS) for processing. The FAFSA data is collected on a paper FAFSA. After the CPS processes the data, the results of the electronic FAFSA are transmitted back to the destination point. The FAFSA data is submitted in the EAPS07IN message class and processing results are returned in the IDAP07OP message class. FAA Access to CPS Online allows financial aid administrators (FAAs) to enter and transmit FAFSA information using the Internet. However, schools can choose to develop their own software. The remainder of this section includes specifications for developing software to provide the required electronic FAFSA functions.

Electronic FAFSA Process
The Electronic FAFSA process involves five steps: 1. The student submits a completed and signed paper FAFSA to the school. 2. The information on the FAFSA is key-entered. 3. The file is formatted and transmitted to the CPS through the Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG). 4. The FAFSA data is edited and corrected until a clean data file is created. The CPS edits the data for inconsistencies. The data elements for each field must be in the valid range with no inconsistencies in the data. For example, if a student indicates a marital status of single, yet provides income earned from work for student and spouse, an edit is triggered at the CPS. 5. The CPS transmits processed FAFSA records back to the destination point as Institutional Student Information Records (ISIRs) under the message class IDAP07OP.

EDE Processing 2-4

Receiving the Completed Paper FAFSA
Schools participating in Electronic Application submission must have their students complete and sign paper FAFSAs. The Department of Education (ED) provides the FAFSA forms. The school must keep the completed and signed document on file.

Entering and Formatting the FAFSA Information
As part of the FAFSA entry and formatting, you are responsible for ensuring that the data meets the field-by-field criteria provided in the “Valid Content” column of the FAFSA Application Export Record Layout. The record created by your system or software must adhere to the record layout provided in the Record Layout section with the addition of a Carriage Return/Line Feed (CR/LF, ASCII 13, 10 HEX 0D, and 0A respectively) at the end of each record. Use of an endof-file mark (ASCII 26 or HEX 1A) is optional. FAFSAs with invalid dates or formats are rejected.

Transmitting the Records
Use EDconnect, the transmission software provided by ED, to format your data records and transmit them over SAIG.

Receiving Processed Records
You receive your processed FAFSA records in ISIR format in the IDAP07OP message class. Note: See the Printing section for more information on printing ISIRs.

Rejected FAFSA Records
There may be instances when the CPS does not accept your records for processing. The CPS returns a rejected electronic FAFSA error report to you in the message class EAPR07OP. The Record Layouts section contains the EDE Record Level Error Report Import Record Layout. The Processing Codes section contains additional information on the reject reasons found in the record layout.

December 2005 (2006-2007)

EDE Technical Reference

EDE Processing 2-5

The two categories of rejections for submitted FAFSA records are:

Transaction Rejects – A transaction reject prevents the FAFSA record from being processed. If a record is rejected for one or more reasons, an error report is returned to the school in message class EAPR07OP (see the EDE Record Level Error Report Import Record Layout in the Record Layouts section) and no ISIR is created. These rejects are also known as record level rejects. Compute Rejects – The CPS contains a series of edits that evaluate data on incoming FAFSA records for consistency and completeness. These edits apply to all data from electronic and paper input. The CPS does not compute an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) for a FAFSA rejected for a compute reject reason. However, an ISIR is produced. ISIRs with a compute reject are returned in the IDAP07OP message class. The reasons for the compute reject are coded on the ISIR. Refer to the Processing Codes section for information on interpreting these reject codes.

In the paper system, a student can verify a data field by reentering the same information in the Student Aid Report (SAR) correction column for the field in question. In the electronic process, the school verifies the data (reenters the data as a “correction”) and transmits the correction record to the CPS. Data that must be verified or corrected in response to each reject reason is provided in the Processing Codes section. A student’s record will not have an EFC if the record contains questionable data and has FAFSA reject reason codes, which are located in positions 698 through 711 on the ISIR. Procedures for responding to the codes may be found in the section titled “Table of Reject Codes and How to Respond to Each” in section 4 of this technical reference.

Renewal FAFSAs and Renewal Reminders
Each year the CPS creates a Renewal FAFSA for students who are eligible to participate in the renewal application process. The Renewal FAFSA is a tremendous timesaver for students because responses from the prior cycle’s FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA are displayed and the applicant must only answer questions that are likely to have changed from the previous year. ED is making several major changes for the 2006-2007 cycle to modernize the renewal application process. The biggest change is that all renewal-eligible applicants will now use the Web to reapply for aid because paper Renewal FAFSAs will no longer be printed and mailed. Schools cannot request that the CPS send a paper Renewal FAFSA. Eligible student applicants can access Renewal FAFSA on the Web using their PIN to complete and submit a 2006-2007 Renewal FAFSA. More details about student eligibility to participate in the Renewal Application process are provided in the 2006-2007 Renewal FAFSA Process Guide, which can be found on the Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site located at fsadownload.ed.gov, as well as on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site located at ifap.ed.gov.

ISIR
The ISIR is a fixed-length record containing reported information from the FAFSA, as well as key processing results. The CPS sends the ISIR electronically to institutions that the student has indicated he or she plans to attend. Generally, all information printed by the CPS on the paper SAR is coded in the ISIR File. Note: The average CPS processing time is between 48 and 52 hours.

NSLDS Data
The ISIR includes National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) information, which is located at the end of the ISIR Record Description.

ISIR Datamart
The ISIR Datamart is the centralized location for all ISIR data generated by the CPS. Schools, state agencies, and other authorized users receive ISIR distributions from the datamart through the Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG). You can use FSA’s Participation Management System to establish your school’s preferences regarding receiving “daily” ISIR files from the ISIR Datamart. For more information visit the SAIG Enrollment Web site at: fsawebenroll.ed.gov

ISIR Receipt Process
The CPS transmits ISIR records to the SAIG. Descriptions of the contents of the ISIR record are in the Record Layouts section.

ISIR Types The CPS produces three general ISIR types:

Daily ISIRs. Schools can receive “daily” ISIRs or request specific ISIR records or groups of records from the ISIR Datamart. Daily ISIRs are generated daily in response to FAFSAs or corrections entered by you or at a site other than your school. The CPS sends these ISIRs to school destination points in the IGCO07OP, IDAP07OP, and IDSA07OP message classes. All users, by default, are set up for the daily ISIR distribution preference. This preference can be updated at any time in FSA’s Participation Management System. You can also control how and when to receive ISIRs at your school based on the preferences or needs of your institution. If you select daily receipt of ISIRs, you can also use the datamart as needed to request ISIRs. All ISIR transactions for each student are stored in the datamart and are available for retrieval upon request. The FAA Access to CPS Online Web site enables you to submit requests to the datamart for specific ISIR data based on query criteria. Daily and pushed ISIR data files are stored for retrieval in your SAIG mailbox under current retention and archival guidelines.

Requested ISIRs. Requesting ISIRs is a simple process that enables you to receive only the ISIRs you need. You use the ISIR Request feature on the FAA Access to CPS Online Web site to request ISIRs from the datamart. The CPS returns these ISIRs to the school in the ISRF07OP message class. You can submit a query request to the datamart for duplicate ISIRs, year-to-date (YTD) files, or federal data request (FDR) files (for state agencies only). There is no limit to the number of times you can request the same ISIR. Your school must be listed on the specific ISIR transaction you are requesting for the request to be successfully processed. As queries are run against the datamart, files of requested ISIRs are generated and sent to you through the SAIG. These files must be retrieved from your SAIG mailbox within 14 calendar days or they will be deleted (and cannot be restored). If this occurs, you can resubmit the same request to the datamart and the data will be generated and sent to you again. You can view the request date and request status any time after submitting a request. If the request has been processed, you can also view the request completion date and the number of ISIRs that were sent. You can submit as many query requests to the ISIR Datamart per day as necessary to retrieve the data you require.

December 2005 (2006-2007)

EDE Technical Reference

EDE Processing 2-9

Titles must be added to the query requests you submit, and the title you enter will be returned in the ISIR file you receive as a result of your request. This will assist you in matching ISIR files to individual requests you have submitted to the datamart. When you return to FAA Access to CPS Online to enter a new ISIR request, your most recently completed or pending requests are displayed. Rather than creating a new query, you can save time by using a prior query again to request ISIRs, provided the parameters still apply. You may want to modify the title of the request to distinguish it from other requests you have previously submitted. For your convenience, queries can be set up to run on a future date. For example, you can set a date in the future to receive all ISIRs processed on or before key deadlines at your school or state agency. If you want your query to run as soon as possible, simply leave the execute date blank and your query will run after the next CPS compute.

Automatically Pushed ISIRs. Certain ISIR transactions are automatically distributed (or “pushed”) to you, regardless of the ISIR delivery option selected in the Participation Management System. This process assists you in meeting requirements for reviewing relevant ISIR data for your students before and after disbursement of financial aid awards. ISIRs that are generated and automatically returned to the school are sent in the IGSA07OP and IGSG07OP message classes. When your Federal School Code is listed on the following types of transactions, a systemgenerated ISIR (IGSG07OP) is automatically pushed to your school: − CPS reprocessing − Department of Homeland Security (DHS) automated secondary confirmation − NSLDS Post-Screening

When a correction record processed by the CPS results in one of the following changes on the new transaction, the school that submitted the correction receives the transaction in a daily ISIR file (IGCO07OP), while all other schools listed on the transaction will receive a pushed ISIR file (IGSA07OP): − Reject Status changes (records that change from a rejected status to having a calculated EFC or from having a calculated EFC to a rejected status) − Verification Status changes (not selected to selected) − EFC changes − SAR C Code changes Pushed ISIR files are sent to state agencies in the IGRE07OP or IGNR07OP message classes (for resident and non-resident transactions, respectively). Pushed ISIR data files are stored for retrieval in your SAIG mailbox under current retention and archival guidelines. Each school subscribing to the “daily ISIR” service receives one ISIR for every student who lists that school on the FAFSA. Regardless of the service for which a school has enrolled, all schools receive “pushed ISIRs.” Servicers receive only one ISIR per destination point. For message class details, state agencies should refer to the State Agencies information later in this section.

ISIR Message Classes
The CPS generates ISIRs in response to input from schools. This includes such input as FAFSAs, FAFSA corrections, and CPS-generated transactions. The CPS transmits schoolrequested ISIRs to the SAIG in one of three message classes:

ISRF07OP – Requested ISIRs The CPS returns ISIRs in this message class to the school in response to ISIR Datamart requests through FAA Access to CPS Online. The school receives one ISIR for every record that meets the ISIR query criteria.

EDE Technical Reference

EDE Processing 2-11

IGSA07OP and IGSG07OP – Pushed ISIRs ISIRs in these message classes are automatically pushed to the school because of transactions processed by the CPS. These transactions require you to take some sort of action. An example of a pushed ISIR would be a student-initiated correction that causes a change to the EFC. We have listed below the instances when the CPS system pushes an ISIR for a student. − EFC value change − SAR C Flag change between transactions − CPS reprocessing of records − CPS receives changed information through NSLDS Post-Screening or DHS Secondary Match − Records selected for verification − Rejected records that now have an EFC − Records that previously had an EFC but are now rejected

IGCO07OP, IDAP07OP, and IDSA07OP – Daily ISIRs The CPS generates ISIRs in these message classes daily in response to FAFSAs or corrections entered by you or at a site other than your school or state agency. These ISIRs are generated in response to the following documents:
− − − −

Paper FAFSAs or SARs processed by the Image and Data Capture (IDC) processor Electronic FAFSAs, Renewal FAFSAs on the Web, or Corrections on the Web Electronic FAFSAs or corrections on FAA Access to CPS Online Electronic FAFSAs or corrections by another EDE school or third-party servicer

Important Information about ISIR Files

Schools Must Obtain ISIRs for All Eligible Students. Although the flexibilities and options provided to schools through use of the ISIR Datamart are extensive, we want to remind you that you are obligated to obtain ISIRs for all eligible students who enroll at your school. Develop an ISIR Request Process. We highly recommend that you develop a process for requesting ISIRs from the datamart that takes into account your ongoing student admissions process as well as the tracking and monitoring of existing students with paid-on ISIR transactions. Review ALL Pushed ISIRs. Your school must review all pushed ISIRs and assess any potential impact to your students’ aid eligibility, regardless of whether or not you select the “daily” ISIR distribution. Schools Choosing NOT to Receive Daily ISIRs. Schools that elect not to receive daily ISIRs and instead request specific ISIR transactions from the datamart must continue to review ISIR transactions for all enrolled students.

State Agency Options
State agencies can combine processed FAFSA data from CPS with common loan application data to guarantee federal student loans and/or with state data to award state scholarships and grants. As destination points, state agencies can automatically receive ISIRs from the CPS or request ISIRS from the ISIR Datamart. The message classes used by state agencies for 2006-2007 are listed below. IDNR07OP IDRE07OP IGNR07OP IGRE07OP ISRF07OP Daily State Agency ISIR Non-Resident Daily State Agency ISIR Resident CPS Pushed State Agency ISIR Non-Resident CPS Pushed State Agency ISIR Resident Requested ISIR Data from the ISIR Datamart

You can set up your ISIR request preference in the Participation Management System. For more information regarding the Participation Management System, contact CPS/SAIG Technical Support through e-mail at CPSSAIG@ed.gov, or at 800/330-5947.

Electronic Corrections
Schools with destination points enrolled for electronic correction processing are able to transmit corrections to FAFSA data through FAA Access to CPS Online. FAA Access to CPS Online allows schools to enter and edit correction data according to the CPS system requirements. Schools, however, can choose to develop their own software or system to enter, edit, and format correction data. We provide specifications for developing correction software in the remainder of this section. You submit correction data in the CORR07IN message class and the CPS returns the resulting ISIR in either the IGSA07OP or the IGCO07OP message class.

General Correction Entry Specifications
You transmit only corrected information from a student’s record, not the complete applicant record, to the CPS. This approach minimizes the transmission volume. Correction information is transmitted as a fixed-length record. The layout and description of this record is in the Correction Export Record Layout (CORR07IN) in the Record Layouts section.

Creating a Correction Record
Use the following steps to create a Correction record: 1. In the first position of the record, enter 7 to indicate this is a correction to a 2006-2007 applicant transaction. 2. In positions 2 through 10, enter the applicant’s original Social Security Number (SSN). This is the number reported by the applicant on the FAFSA form and does not reflect any corrections to the SSN that might have been made. 3. In positions 11 and 12, enter the first two letters of the original applicant’s last name. These are the letters reported by the applicant on the FAFSA form and do not reflect any corrections to the last name that might have been made.

EDE Technical Reference

EDE Processing 2-14

4. In positions 13 and 14, enter the transaction number of the applicant record being corrected. For example, enter 01 to correct the first transaction on file at CPS. The transaction does not necessarily have to be the latest one on file at CPS. If the transaction number being corrected is not on the CPS database, the record is rejected. To correct the most recent transaction, enter 99. Note: When making a correction using transaction 99, you must also provide corrections to SAR field number 086 (the first Federal School Code), field number 115 (DRN), and the signatures on the record. 5. In positions 15 through 17, enter the SAR number of the SAR field being corrected. Each correctable field has a three-digit SAR number associated with it. For example, enter 001 to correct the student’s last name. We have provided the SAR numbers with valid content in the Correction Data Entry Specifications Table found in the Processing Codes section. 6. In positions 18 through 52, enter the new value for the field being corrected. 7. Optional: In positions 53 through 470, you can enter or correct other student data fields. See the second note below for more information. 8. Optional: In positions 471 through 520, enter or correct the student’s e-mail address. 9. In positions 521 through 522, enter 1C for the transaction data source/type code. 10. In positions 523 through 530, enter the transaction receipt date. Enter the date you are making the correction. The CPS will update this information on the ISIR with the date the CPS received this correction. 11. You can set assumption override codes in positions 531 through 536 and reject override codes for reject 3, 12, A, B, C, G, J, K, N, and W in positions 537 through 548. 12. In positions 549 through 554, enter the Federal School Code of the school making the correction. Note: To correct a field to blank, enter a single asterisk (*) left justified in that field. The Correction Data Entry Specification Table in section 4 distinguishes which fields you may correct to blank. Not all fields may be corrected this way. Note: Up to 12 SAR data fields can be corrected on a single record. If you are correcting more than one field, repeat steps 5 and 6 using the remaining data fields on the correction record. If more than 12 fields require correction, you must create an additional record, repeating steps 1 through 10.

Detailed Data Entry Specifications
Each corrected value must meet certain standards; otherwise, the correction record is rejected. We have provided field-by-field data entry specifications in the Processing Codes section of this Technical Reference. For each field, these specifications identify the type (character, numeric, or signed-numeric), the acceptable length, and the valid values for the correction. The specifications also show whether the field is correctable and if it is correctable to blank. Keep the following items in mind:

Left justify the corrected value within the data field on the correction record, while zerofilling numeric fields up to the valid maximum length of the field and leaving blank any empty positions to the right. For example, to correct the number of family members to five, enter 05 in positions 18 and 19, leaving positions 20 through 52 blank. To correct the student’s last name to Smith, enter SMITH (in uppercase as the layout notes) in positions 18 through 22, leaving positions 23 through 52 blank. A field content of all nines indicates the reported or calculated value is greater than or equal to the value of all nines. Blanks are allowable in some fields. Fields can contain one of three data types: character, numeric, or signed numeric.

A negative entry is acceptable for a limited number of fields. The Correction Data Entry Specifications Table in the Processing Codes section identifies the fields in which a negative is acceptable under the Justify Signed column and the Valid Content column. The Signed Numeric Fields Table on the next page defines the signed fields. In the case of signed numeric fields, the sign is always implied in the right-most character of the field. For example, if the student’s adjusted gross income (AGI) contains a value of negative 3507, the record contains 00350P. Because the AGI value does not contain as many bytes as the correction field, the record must have leading zeros. The following digits are the AGI value with the exception of the last digit. To determine the last digit use the chart below. Determine if the value is positive or negative and select the corresponding value for the last digit. The following chart explains the conversion of the sign and the number: 0 Positive Values Negative Values { } 1 A J 2 B K 3 C L 4 D M 5 E N 6 F O 7 G P 8 H Q 9 I R

Making Signature Corrections
Signature information is required to resolve signature rejects (rejects 14, 15, and 16). You do not need to provide signature information on other standard corrections unless you are using 99 as the transaction number. If you have a transaction that was a reject 14, 15, or 16, simply correct SAR field #100 (Signed By) to A (Applicant) or B (Both = Student and Parent), as appropriate. If you need to add a signature to a student’s record that is on hold for lack of signatures, you must use the layout for Signature Record Export Record Layout (SIGS07IN) found in section 3, Record Layouts. You can correct the student or parent signature using this layout. You must make sure the student included your school on the FAFSA or correction.

Adding Your Federal School Code to Receive Electronic Data
A school cannot make an electronic correction unless the school has been designated on the applicant transaction. You can add your Federal School Code to the list of schools receiving data electronically as well as correct other fields on the record by using the Correction Record Layout (CORR07IN). Follow these steps to add your Federal School Code and/or to make corrections: 1. In the first position of the record, enter 7 to indicate that this is a correction to a 2006-2007 applicant transaction. 2. In positions 2 through 10, enter the applicant’s original SSN. This is the number reported by the applicant on the FAFSA form and does not reflect any corrections to the SSN that might have been made. 3. In positions 11 and 12, enter the first two letters of the original applicant’s last name. These are the letters reported by the applicant on the FAFSA form and do not reflect any corrections to the last name that might have been made. 4. In positions 13 and 14, enter the transaction number of the applicant record being corrected. For example, enter 01 to correct the first transaction on file at CPS. The transaction does not necessarily have to be the latest one on file at the CPS. If the transaction number being corrected is not on the CPS database, the record is rejected. You can use transaction 99 to add your school code to the most recent transaction on the CPS Database.

5. Enter 115 in the SAR Field Number Correction #1 field, positions 15 through 17 (corresponding to the SAR Field #115, the Data Release Number [DRN]). 6. Enter the student’s DRN in Correction Data 1 field, positions 18 through 52. Remember to left justify it and leave any unused bytes blank. Note: The CPS has assigned a unique DRN to each Title IV applicant. It appears only on paper SARs. If a valid DRN is not present on the correction record containing the Federal School Code change, the record will be rejected. 7. Enter the SAR field number associated with the Federal School Code position being changed in the SAR Field Number Correction #2 field, positions 53 through 55. Possible field numbers are 086, 088, 090, 092, 094, and 096. 8. Enter the Federal School Code in the Correction Data 2 field positions 56 through 90. Remember to left justify it and leave any unused bytes blank. You can only change the Federal School Code to the number of the participating EDE school submitting the correction. You also must enter this number in the EDE Federal School Code field, positions 549 through 554. If the codes in these two fields do not match, the record will be rejected. Schools can modify the Federal School Code and make other corrections to the applicant record on the same correction transaction. 9. Optional: In positions 471 through 520, enter or correct the student’s e-mail address. 10. In positions 521 through 522, enter 1C for the transaction data source/type code. 11. In positions 523 through 530, enter the transaction receipt date (the date you are making the correction). The CPS will update this information on the ISIR with the date the CPS received this correction. 12. You can set assumption override codes in positions 531 through 536 and reject override codes for reject 3, 12, A, B, C, G, J, K, N, and W in positions 537 through 548. 13. In positions 549 through 554, enter the Federal School Code of the school making the correction.

Tips for Corrections
When you submit an ISIR correction to the CPS, we use the transaction number you provide in positions 13 and 14 as a template. We make changes to the fields you indicated, leaving other fields unchanged. Your Federal School Code must be one of the six listed, but it does not have to be the first college choice on the transaction to be processed by the CPS. You will receive the processed results in the IGCO07OP message class. If you are submitting a dependency override or FAA adjustment (professional judgment) as part of the correction record, only your school receives the resulting corrected ISIR transaction. Also, do not send a dependency override correction with an FAA adjustment to a transaction without an EFC. If there is no EFC, first send the dependency override with any other corrections necessary to obtain an EFC. Then submit the FAA adjustment to the transaction with the dependency override and the EFC.

Rejected Correction Records
The two categories of rejections for submitted correction records are:

Transaction Rejects – A transaction reject prevents the correction record from being applied to the student’s record. If a record is rejected for one or more reasons, the school receives an error report in message class CORE07OP (see EDE Record Level Error Report Import Record layout in the Record Layouts section). No ISIR is created. Compute Rejects – The CPS contains a series of edits that evaluate all incoming FAFSA and correction data for consistency and completeness. These edits apply to all data from electronic, Web, and paper input. The CPS does not compute an EFC for a correction rejected for a compute reject reason. However, an ISIR is produced. Correction ISIRs with a compute reject are returned in the IGCO07OP message class. The reasons for the compute reject are coded on the ISIR in positions 698 through 711. Refer to the Processing Codes section for information on interpreting these reject codes.

In the paper system, a student can verify a data field by reentering the same information in the SAR correction column for the field in question. In the electronic process, the school can verify the data (reenter the data as a “correction”) or set the appropriate reject override (found at the end of the CORR07IN Record Layout in positions 537 through 548) and transmit the correction record to the CPS. Data that must be verified or corrected in response to each reject reason is provided in the Processing Codes section.

A student’s record may not have an EFC if the record contains questionable data and has FAFSA reject reason codes. The reject reason codes are found in positions 698 through 711 on the ISIR. They explain the questionable and highlighted fields.

There were no start or end position or field length changes to any of the fields on the record layouts for the 2006-2007 award year. However, some of the valid content has changed. View the Changes column in each layout for the specific changes. The Data Release Number (DRN) field on the 2005-2006 ISIR Record Layout, field 137, has changed to filler for the 2006-2007 year. The DRN will function as it has in the past and the student will have the same access to the DRN, however it will not be included in the ISIR file. We anticipate major changes to the record layouts for the 2007-2008 award year.

Request Title in ISIR Files
To identify the group of ISIRs belonging to your datamart requests, a request title for each query is returned in the resulting ISIR file sent to your school. The title appears as the first detail line in the ISIR file after the SAIG header record. The title will be in positions 1 to 50. Positions 51 to 2600 will be blank. In addition, to ensure that the ISIR data from CPS for all ISIR records is consistent for your school’s software, this request title is part of the daily and pushed ISIR files you receive. For these ISIR files, the first detail line contains all blanks in positions 1 to 2600. Examples are listed below: ISIRs received as a result of a datamart request Line 1: O*N05 record (SAIG header record) Line 2: Request Title (up to 50 bytes of description from the datamart query) Line 3: First ISIR record meeting request query Line 4: Second ISIR record meeting request query Line 5: O*N95 record (SAIG trailer record)

Introduction
This section provides charts and tables that include an explanation of the different reject codes and how to respond to each. Other tables provide information that further explains other processing codes associated with the Central Processing System (CPS) Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) process.

Summary of Tables
In this section, you will find several tables to assist you when reviewing files.

2006-2007 ISIR Cross-Reference
This table is a cross-reference of the 2005-2006 Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) field number, start position, and end position with the 2006-2007 ISIR field number, start position, and end position. It also lists the field values (for each field) that have changed from the last award year.

Table of Reject Codes and How to Respond to Each
Use this table to determine the meaning of each reject code possible on a Student Aid Report (SAR) or ISIR. The table also outlines how to correct each reject and references comment code numbers associated with the rejects.

Record and Transmission Error Messages
This table reports the Record Reject codes (3 to 13) and the Transmission Error codes (14 to 18). The table lists the actual text for each reject code, a description of the error, and a resolution for each error. The record error messages indicate that the individual student record was not processed. You will need to fix any student record with a record error message and send it to the Central Processing System (CPS) again for processing so an ISIR is generated. Transmission errors are problems with the transmission of the records.

Assumption Overrides
This table associates the override codes with the assumption the CPS is making during processing. It also explains what happens if you use this code and an example of when you would use this code.

Field Name and Position Cross-References
Use this table to determine which fields were verified or corrected in the previous transaction or which fields are highlighted on the ISIR. It also defines the field positions for the SAR field, the FAFSA field name, and the question number on the FAFSA.

Processing Codes 4-4

NSLDS Loan Program Codes
Use these codes to determine the type of loan program of up to six loans in the NSLDS portion of the ISIR Record Description/Data Dictionary found in the Record Layouts section of this technical reference.

NSLDS Loan Current Status Codes
Use these codes to determine the current status of any of the loans (up to six) in the NSLDS portion of the ISIR Record Description/Data Dictionary, which is found in the Record Layouts section of this technical reference.

State/Country/Jurisdiction Codes
Use this table to determine the valid state abbreviations used for the following fields found throughout the Record Layouts section of this technical reference:
• • • •

Student’s Permanent State Student’s Driver’s License State Code Student's State of Legal Residence Parents' State of Legal Residence

Correction Data Entry Specifications
You may use this table in conjunction with the Correction Export Record Layout found in section 3, Record Layouts. The table defines the SAR field number and field length. It defines what data is valid to send for each SAR field on a correction record. The table also indicates if the SAR field is a signed value, the justification of the SAR field, and if the field can be corrected to blank.

Message Classes
This table lists the message classes associated with application processing.

Comment Codes
This section references the location of the 2006-2007 ISIR Comment Codes and Text document.

It contains all the ISIR fields that EDExpress does not print on the ISIR. An example of an ISIR printed from EDExpress is included at the end of this section for your reference. The following information describes how EDExpress prints values. We have provided it to assist the school or state agency in printing the data on an ISIR.

Printing Assumed Values
Assumed Values reflect suppositions the Central Processing System (CPS) has made in determining the applicant’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The CPS makes assumptions when the applicant does not report certain information that is necessary for the EFC calculation or when the applicant reports inconsistent information. (Some unreported information results in a rejected transaction rather than assumptions.) The CPS uses the assumed value when calculating the EFC. For certain fields, the only assumption the CPS ever makes is zero so these assumption fields on the ISIR contain zeros (for example, ISIR field 165, Assumed Student’s U.S. Tax Paid). On the ISIR, EDExpress prints an asterisk (*) to the left of the field title to indicate that the CPS made an assumption and the assumed value must print in place of the reported value. If a field is both assumed and highlighted, EDExpress would print an asterisk (*) to the left of the field title. For more information on highlighted fields, see the Printing Highlight Flags information later in this section. Positions 719 through 791 of the ISIR all contain CPS assumption fields.

Printing Intermediate EFC Values
An intermediate EFC is a value used during the EFC calculation process. EDExpress prints the intermediate EFC values as calculated by the formula type.

FAFSA Data Verify Flags
FAFSA Data Verify Flags are found on the ISIR (positions 1464 through 1583.) Each FAFSA Data Verify Flag byte corresponds to a specific Student Aid Report (SAR) field and indicates fields corrected to the same value on the transaction being corrected. Refer to the Field Name and Position Cross References Table in section 4. If a field was verified as the same data as the transaction being corrected, the FAFSA Data Verify Flag contains a value of 1. A value of 0 (zero) signifies that this field was not corrected to the same value and a value of 2 means the CPS has asked that the field be verified. EDExpress does not print these flags on the ISIR. These flags were added at the request of thirdparty servicers to assist them when doing correction edits.

Printing Correction Flags
Correction flags on the ISIR (positions 1224 through 1343 on the ISIR layout) indicate changes to FAFSA data processed by the CPS. Refer to the Field Name and Position Cross-References Table in section 4. If a field was corrected on the current transaction, the correction flag contains a value of 1. If a field was corrected on a previous transaction, the correction flag contains a value of 2. All other correction flag fields contain a value of 0. EDExpress prints a pound sign (#) on the ISIR to the right of the field variable that was corrected on the most current transaction, and prints an at sign (@) to the right of the field variable that was corrected on a previous transaction. Correction flags are cumulative (for example, the flag is carried on all subsequent transactions). EDExpress does not actually print the data in this field. Rather, it uses this data to determine which fields have a # (pound sign) or an @ (at sign) printed to the right of the field variable to show that the field has been corrected from the original application.

Printing Highlight Flags
Highlight flags on the ISIR (positions 1344 through 1463 on the ISIR layout) indicate data highlighted in bold face on the SAR, based on FAFSA data processed by the CPS. Refer to the Field Name and Position Cross References Table in section 4. These fields are highlighted and provide a comparison reference between the SAR question number and ISIR field position. Any field containing a highlight flag contains a value of 1. All other highlight flag fields contain a value of 0. On the ISIR, EDExpress prints the letter h to the left of the field title that was highlighted. If the field is both highlighted and assumed, an asterisk (*) also prints to the left of the field title. EDExpress does not actually print the data in this field. Rather, it uses this data to determine which fields print an h to the left of the field title to show that the field was highlighted.

Rejected ISIRs
Applications and corrections submitted to the CPS, regardless of the input type or source, can be rejected for incomplete, illogical, or inconsistent data. An EFC is not computed for a rejected application transaction. Transactions can be rejected for multiple reasons. Up to seven two-digit reject reason codes are carried on the ISIR. The reject reason codes and resolution in response to each reject reason are described in the Table of Reject Codes and How to Respond to Each subsection within section 4, Processing Codes.

Comments
Up to 20 three-digit numbers can appear on the ISIR record, indicating which comments would appear on Part One of a SAR from any paper application processor. Some comments contain critical information regarding the student’s status. The comment text that prints on the ISIRs can be found in the 2006-2007 SAR Comment Codes and Text document found on the U.S. Department of Education's Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site located at fsadownload.ed.gov, as well as on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site located at ifap.ed.gov.

NSLDS Page
The ISIR record contains NSLDS information. EDExpress only stores the most recent NSLDS transaction. As a result, when the ISIR is printed from EDExpress the transaction number for the student’s NSLDS record may not match the transaction number of the ISIR being printed. You should always print the NSLDS information with the highest transaction number no matter what the transaction number of the ISIR being printed.

Field Types
Fields can contain one of three types of data: character, numeric (N), or signed numeric (S/N). A content of all nines in a field indicates that the reported or calculated value is greater than or equal to the value of all nines. Blanks are allowable in some S/N and N fields. With S/N fields, the sign is always implied in the right-most character of the field. For example, if the Student’s Adjusted Gross Income field contains a value of negative 3507, it would appear as 00350P. The following chart explains the conversion of the sign and the number: Signed Numeric Fields: 0 Positive Values Negative Values { } 1 A J 2 B K 3 C L 4 D M 5 E N 6 F O 7 G P 8 H Q 9 I R

Note: All signed fields print an extra byte.

Other Field Notes
When the Is Student Selected for Verification field in position 1749 on the ISIR layout is populated, EDExpress prints the value. If the value contains a Y, then an asterisk (*) is printed next to the EFC. Additionally, EDExpress does not print the value in the Electronic Federal School Code Indicator field. Instead, it prints the Federal School Code number associated with the value. For example, if the Electronic Federal School Code Indicator equals 3, EDExpress prints the value for the Federal School Code #3 field.
