APPENDIX D--1997-98 SAR COMMENT CODES AND TEXT
INFORMATION ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
Student's Comment Text


01 We have processed your application for Federal student aid, or
the correction that you submitted electronically through your
school. On the back of this page we printed the information
we received and a summary of the results of processing that
information. We may have assumed certain information to
calculate your eligibility for Federal student aid. We printed
any assumptions we made and the word "assumed" for those
items on the back of this page. Contact your Financial Aid
Administrator (FAA) if:

- the assumptions we made are not correct,
- you need to make other corrections,
- we indicate below that we need more information to
determine your eligibility,
- we indicate below you are selected for verification, or
- we indicate below you must work with your FAA to resolve
some eligibility issues.

02 You need to give us more information before we can
determine your eligibility for Federal student aid.

03 If all the information on this Student Aid Report is correct, you
may be eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant and other
Federal student aid in 1997-98. Your FAA will determine
whether you meet all other requirements to receive aid. The
amount of aid will depend on the cost of attendance at your
school, your enrollment status, Congressional budget
restrictions, and other factors.

04 Based on the information you gave us, you are not eligible for
a Federal Pell Grant. However, you may be eligible for other
types of aid.

05 Your application has been selected for review in a process
called verification. You must submit to your school signed
copies of certain 1996 documents.

06 You must work with your FAA to resolve some issues before
the FAA can determine if you are eligible to receive Federal
financial aid.

07 You must resolve some issues before we can determine your
eligibility for Federal student aid. Unless you are completing
verification, it may be too late for you to make corrections or
give us any more information this year. If you are still
completing verification and you need to correct your Student
Aid Report (SAR), contact the FAA at your school for
assistance. We must have your corrected SAR no later than
August 14, 1998.

(SAR) we processed on . No information has been changed.

20202-5320. Include with your letter a copy of your SAR and
your current address and telephone number (including the area

your FAA.

014 Records indicate that you received Federal student aid in a
prior school year, but may not have registered with Selective
Service as required. Your Selective Service registration status
must be confirmed before you can receive any additional aid.
If you are already registered, are exempt from registration, or
are not required to register, contact Selective Service at
847-688-6888. Otherwise, if you have not yet reached age 26,
you should register at your local post office.

FOR YOURSELF THAT APPEARS TO BE UNUSUALLY
LOW. REVIEW THE BOLDFACE ITEMS IN SECTION I
ON PART 2 OF YOUR SAR AND MAKE CORRECTIONS
IF NECESSARY.

023 It appears that the social security number you reported on your
application is not a valid social security number. See your
FAA for assistance.

024 The Social Security Administration (SSA) did not confirm that
the social security number you reported on your aid
application is valid. If you believe that the number you
reported is correct, you must contact an SSA office to
resolve this problem. If you determine that the social security
number you reported on your aid application is not correct,
you should correct your social security number in Item 8 on
your SAR.

025 N/A

026 Selective Service records indicate that you are not required to
be registered with them until within 30 days of your 18th
birthday. If you have not yet initiated the registration process,
you may either check the "Yes" box for Item 105 on Part 2 of
your SAR or obtain and complete a Selective Service
Registration form, available at your local post office. If you
have already requested that you be registered, they will process
your request 30 days prior to your 18th birthday.

027 This report was produced in response to your Financial Aid
Administrator's (FAA's) use of professional judgement to
ADJUST your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

028 We have forwarded your name to Selective Service for
registration, as you requested. They will process your
registration request 30 days prior to your 18th birthday.

029 Your registration or your exemption status has been confirmed
by Selective Service.

030 The Selective Service reported that you have not registered
with them. If you are female or were born before 1960,
disregard this comment. Otherwise, a male who is required to
register with Selective Service must be registered before aid
can be disbursed. If you have not yet registered, are male, and
are 18 through 25 years of age, you must either check the
"Yes" box for Item 105 on Part 2 of your SAR, or obtain and
complete a Selective Service Registration form, available at
your local post office. If you believe you have already
registered or are exempt, please contact the Selective Service
at 847-688-6888 to resolve any problems regarding your
registration status.

031 We have forwarded your name to Selective Service for
registration, as you requested.

032 Because of processing problems we were unable to conduct a
match to verify your registration status with Selective Service.
If you are female or were born before 1960, disregard this
comment. Otherwise, a male who is required to register with
Selective Service must verify he is registered before aid can be
disbursed. If you are registered, you will receive a letter of
confirmation from the Selective Service within two weeks. If
you are not registered, are male, and are 18 through 25 years
of age, you must either check the "Yes" box for Item 105 on
Part 2 of your SAR, or obtain and complete a Selective Service
Registration form, available at your local post office. If you
believe you are registered and do not receive a letter of
confirmation, or are exempt, contact Selective Service at
847-688-6888.

033 We could not send your name to Selective Service as you
requested because you did not give us enough information, or
because you are past the age limit for registration. If you are
at least 18 but not yet 26, you may register by checking
the "Yes" box for Item 105 on your SAR. You must also
provide information for Items 1, 2, and 9. You may also
register by obtaining and completing a Selective Service
Registration form, available at your local post office. If you
are a male who has reached age 26, you cannot use the SAR to
register. You must contact Selective Service at 847-688-6888
to resolve your registration status before you can receive
Federal student aid. You are exempt from registering if born
before 1960.

034 THIS REPORT WAS PRODUCED IN RESPONSE TO
YOUR REQUEST FOR A SPECIAL CONDITION
CALCULATION.

035 FOR YOUR FAA'S INFORMATION, WE HAVE
PROVIDED AN EXPECTED FAMILY
CONTRIBUTION (EFC) CALCULATION BASED ON
YOUR EXPECTED 1997 INCOME.

036 WE COULD NOT PROCESS YOUR REQUEST FOR A
SPECIAL CONDITION CALCULATION. EITHER
YOU DID NOT PROVIDE YOUR EXPECTED 1997
INCOME, OR YOUR FAA DID NOT COMPLETE THE
NECESSARY INFORMATION IN THE SCHOOL USE BOX.
CONTACT YOUR FAA FOR FURTHER ASSISTANCE.

037 We were unable to complete your registration with Selective
Service. If you wish to register and you have not yet reached
age 26, you must either check the "Yes" box for Item 105 on
your SAR, or complete a Selective Service Registration form,
available at your local post office.

038 N/A

039 N/A

040 This Student Aid Report (SAR) is in response to the student
aid application you submitted. You had already sent an
application that is on file. This SAR contains the same
information as the SAR you received from your previous
application. We only made changes to the address or
institutions. If you need to make changes to your information,
you should make them to this SAR by following the
instructions at the top of Part 2 and in the Free Application for
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) instruction booklet. For
additional help with your SAR, contact your Financial Aid
Administrator (FAA).

041 N/A

042 N/A

043 N/A

044 We could not process your FAA's request for an
ADJUSTMENT to your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
Either you did not provide corrections to your financial
information, or your FAA did not complete the School Use
Box on Part 2 of your SAR. As a result, we only made
changes to your name and address if requested. No changes to
financial information were made. Contact your FAA for
further assistance.

045 This SAR contains information that was corrected from your
previous SAR. Your Financial Aid Administrator provided a
signature and/or a Title IV School Code number in the School
Use Only box, but did not check the box to request a
professional judgment adjustment. Therefore we cannot
determine whether the changes made were student corrections
or FAA adjustments.

046 We could not process your FAA's request to perform or cancel
a DEPENDENCY OVERRIDE. Your FAA did not provide
the necessary information. Contact your FAA for further
assistance.

047 We need you to give us more information so that we can
determine your eligibility for Federal student aid. REVIEW
ALL OF THE INFORMATION on Part 2, the Information
Request Form, and respond to each of the items in bold. After
making all necessary corrections, you and your parent must
sign the Certification at the end of Part 2. You may take Part 2
of your SAR to one of the schools you have listed on the SAR
to have the FAA submit your corrections electronically. Or
you may send Part 2 of your SAR to the address next to the
Certification (keep all other parts for your records). You
will receive a new SAR in about 4 weeks.

053 N/A

054 N/A

055 Your denial of benefits under the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of
1988 has been resolved and processing of your student aid
application may continue. However, you must submit
documentation to your FAA from the Department of
Education's Drug Enforcement and Compliance
Monitoring Office that shows what aid you may be
eligible to receive.

056 Your application cannot be processed because our records
indicate that you are currently being denied aid from one or
more Title IV Federal assistance programs by court order under
terms of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988. If you wish to
contest this finding, contact the Specialist for Drug
Enforcement and Compliance Monitoring, U.S. Department of
Education, 202-708-5129, within 30 days after the date you
submit this SAR to your school.

057 N/A

058 Because of processing problems, we were unable to determine
from the Social Security Administration if the social security
number you reported on your application belongs to you. To
receive Federal student aid, you must provide current proof to
your FAA that the social security number in Item 8 is yours.

059 We could not determine from the Social Security
Administration if the social security number you reported
belongs to you because you did not give us your last name or
date of birth. Correct Items 1 and/or 9 on your SAR.

060 The date of birth you reported on your application is
inconsistent with the Social Security Administration's records.

061 According to Social Security Administration (SSA) records,
the name you reported on your application does not correspond
with the social security number you provided in Item 8. You
should review Items 1, 2, 3, and 8 on this SAR. If all of these
items are correct, you must contact an SSA office to resolve
this problem. If you find that Items 1, 2, or 3 are incorrect, you
should make corrections on your SAR where appropriate. If
you determine that Item 8 is incorrect, you should contact your
FAA to determine if you should correct your social security
number on your SAR or file a new application.

062 In addition, the Social Security Administration could not
confirm your claim of U.S. citizenship because of their
question about your social security number, name, or date of
birth

063 As we have indicated on your previous SAR, the date of birth
you reported on your application is inconsistent with the Social
Security Administration's records.

064 As we have indicated on your previous SAR, the name you
reported on your application does not correspond with the
social security number you provided in Item 8. You should
review Items 1, 2, 3, and 8 on this SAR. If all of these items
are correct, you must contact a Social Security Administration
office to resolve this problem. If Items 1, 2, or 3 are incorrect,
you should make corrections on your SAR where appropriate.
If you determine that Item 8 is incorrect, you should contact
your FAA to determine if you should correct your social
security number on your SAR or file a new application.

065 N/A

066 N/A

067 N/A

068 You did not indicate on your application that you are a U.S.
citizen or an eligible noncitizen. To be eligible to receive
Federal student aid, a student must be--

(1) A U.S. citizen (or U.S. National), or
(2) An eligible noncitizen, such as a U.S. permanent resident
or a resident of certain Pacific Islands, or
(3) An eligible noncitizen as determined by the Department
of Education

069 You reported in Item 32 that you were an undergraduate
student. This conflicts with the information you reported in
Items 19 and/or 42.

070 Your answers to Items 19 and 42 show that you will either
have a bachelor's degree by July 1, 1997 or you will be a
Graduate/Professional student in 1997-98. Graduate students
are eligible for most types of Federal aid, but not the Federal
Pell Grant. Please review your answers to Items 19 and 42 and
make any corrections if necessary. See your FAA to
determine what types of aid you may be able to receive.

071 You did not indicate whether you will have a bachelor's degree
by July 1, 1997 or if you will be a Graduate/Professional
student in 1997-98. After correcting Items 19 and 42, see
your FAA to determine what types of aid you may be able
to receive.

072 Your answers to Items 19 and 42 do not appear to agree.
Please review your answers to Items 19 and 42 and make any
corrections if necessary. Then see your FAA to determine
what types of aid you may be able to receive.

073 You did not tell us your state of legal residence. To calculate
your eligibility for Federal student aid, we assumed that your
state of legal residence is the same as your mailing state (for
independent students) or your parents' state (for dependent
students whose mailing state is blank). If this assumption is
wrong, correct Item 11 by entering your two-character state
code.

074 The date you reported in Item 18 as the date you were married,
separated, divorced, or widowed does not appear to be correct.
Review this information and provide the correct month and
year that your marital status changed.

075 You changed your marital status to "married." You are
required to report marital status as of the date that you signed
your original student aid application, and you should not
update this item if you get married during the 1997-98 school
year. Review your response and make sure it is correct.

076 We could not determine your eligibility for Federal student aid
based on the information you reported on your Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Take both
parts of this Student Aid Report (SAR) to the Financial
Aid Administrator (FAA) at your school to get help correcting
your information.

077 N/A

078 Due to special circumstances, permission has been granted by
the U.S. Department of Education to process your application
after the June 30, 1998 deadline.

079 N/A

080 A student aid application was recently submitted to us by
someone from this address. It appears that an incomplete
name was provided on the application or on the envelope. The
applicant should review Items 1 and 2 on Part 2 of the SAR
and provide his or her full name. If the applicant does not
have both a first and a last name, draw a line through the
answer area for the blank name.

081 We could not understand some of the information you
submitted. We have printed question marks (?????) in the
"You told us" column for those items we didn't understand.
You must correct those items.

082 A student aid application was recently submitted to us by
someone from this address. No name was provided on the
application or on the envelope. The applicant must provide his
or her full name in Items 1 and 2 on Part 2 of the SAR.

083 Our records show that the Social Security Number (SSN) you
reported is being reported by someone else. Please see your
FAA to determine if you need to correct your SAR.

084 Our records show that the Social Security Number (SSN) you
reported is being reported by someone else. Please see your
FAA to determine if you need to make a correction to your
SAR.

085 You didn't tell us whether your parents filed a U. S. income tax
form for 1996, so we assumed your parent(s) did or will file a
1996 U.S. income tax return. If this assumption is not correct,
enter code "5" (Will not file) in Item 65 on Part 2 of your
SAR. Also correct Items 66 through 68, if needed.

086 WE ASSUMED YOUR PARENT(S) WILL FILE A 1997 U.S
INCOME TAX RETURN. IF THIS IS NOT CORRECT,
CONTACT YOUR FAA FOR ASSISTANCE

087 You didn't tell us whether your parents filed a U.S. income tax
form for 1996, so we assumed your parent(s) did not and will
not file a 1996 U.S. income tax return. If this assumption is
not correct, enter the appropriate code number for the form
your parents will file in Item 65 on Part 2 of your SAR. Also
correct Items 66 through 68, if needed.

088 YOU REPORTED AS ZERO, OR LEFT BLANK, SOME OF
THE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR PARENTS'
EXPECTED 1997 INCOME. WE ASSUMED YOUR
PARENT(S) WILL NOT FILE A 1997 U.S. INCOME TAX
RETURN. CORRECT ITEMS 111 THROUGH 116 ON
PART 2 OF YOUR SAR IF THIS ASSUMPTION IS NOT
CORRECT.

089 You reported incomes for both parents. However, you
reported or we assumed that they are Please review Items 48,
69, and 70 and report the marital status and income for only
the parent(s) who support(s) you.

090 N/A

091 YOU REPORTED EXPECTED INCOMES FOR BOTH
YOUR PARENTS. HOWEVER, YOU REPORTED OR WE
ASSUMED THAT THEY ARE PLEASE REVIEW
ITEMS 48, 111, AND 112, AND REPORT THE MARITAL
STATUS AND EXPECTED INCOME FOR ONLY THE
PARENT(S) WHO WILL SUPPORT YOU.

092 You reported a blank or a negative amount, which we cannot
accept, in at least one field on your application. Please
respond to the items in boldface type.

093 YOU REPORTED EXPECTED 1997 INCOME FOR A
SPOUSE. HOWEVER, YOU REPORTED OR WE
ASSUMED THAT YOUR MARITAL STATUS IS
YOU SHOULD REPORT EXPECTED 1997 INCOME FOR
A SPOUSE ONLY IF YOU ARE MARRIED. IF YOU ARE
MARRIED, WRITE "MARRIED" IN ITEM 17 ON PART 2
OF YOUR SAR. IF YOU ARE UNMARRIED OR WERE
MARRIED, BUT THE DIVORCE, SEPARATION, OR
DEATH OF YOUR SPOUSE OCCURRED BEFORE
YOU APPLIED FOR STUDENT AID, CORRECT ITEM 112.
ALSO REVIEW ITEM 111 TO MAKE SURE IT IS
CORRECT.

094 It appears you reported the same income value more than
once. Review the income items in boldface type on Part 2 of
your SAR. If these items are correct, do not change them.

095 You didn't tell us whether you filed a U.S. income tax form for
1996, so we assumed you did or will file a 1996 U.S. income
tax return. If this assumption is not correct, enter code "5"
(Will not file) in Item 53 on Part 2 of your SAR. Also correct
Items 54 through 56, if needed.

096 WE ASSUMED YOU WILL FILE A 1997 U.S. INCOME
TAX RETURN. IF THIS ASSUMPTION IS NOT
CORRECT, CONTACT YOUR FAA FOR ASSISTANCE.

097 You didn't tell us whether you filed a U.S. income tax form for
1996, so we assumed you did not and will not file a 1996 U.S.
income tax return. If this assumption is not correct, enter the
appropriate code number for the form you will file in Item 53
on Part 2 of your SAR. Also correct Items 54 through 56,
if needed.

098 YOU REPORTED AS ZERO, OR LEFT BLANK, SOME OF
THE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR (AND/OR YOUR
SPOUSE'S) EXPECTED 1997 INCOME. WE ASSUMED
YOU WILL NOT FILE A 1997 U.S. INCOME TAX
RETURN. CORRECT ITEMS 111 THROUGH 116 ON
PART 2 OF YOUR SAR IF THIS ASSUMPTION IS NOT
CORRECT.

099 You reported income for a spouse. However, you reported or
we assumed that your marital status is You should report
income for a spouse only if you are married. If you are
married, write "Married" in Item 17 on Part 2 of your SAR. If
you are unmarried or were married, but the separation, divorce,
or death of your spouse occurred before you applied for student
aid, correct Item 58. Also review Item 57 to make sure it is
correct.

100 N/A

101 N/A

102 N/A

103 The Department of Education was unable to find one or more
of the schools you listed on your application on its school file.
We therefore could not determine if each school participates
in Federal student aid programs. To receive Federal student
aid, you must attend a school that participates in these
programs. Check with each school you listed on your
application that does not appear on your SAR to find out if it
participates in these programs. It may be necessary to make
corrections to your SAR.

104 ATTENTION: We were unable to find any schools you listed
on our school file, or you did not list any schools on your
application, or did not verify any schools on your renewal
application. To receive Federal student aid, you must attend a
school that participates in the Federal student aid programs.
Check with each school you are considering in 1997-98 to find
out if it participates in these programs. Contact your FAA for
assistance to make the necessary corrections to your SAR.

105 Based on our records, you have corrected the information
from your financial aid application at least four times. See the
FAA at your school before sending in any further corrections.

106 You have corrected information on your SAR more than
20 times. Before sending in another correction, contact your
FAA for assistance.

107 N/A

108 Your parent did not sign your application or the SAR
corrections you submitted. If your parent is not able to sign,
see your FAA or High School Counselor.

109 We could not process your application or the SAR corrections
you submitted because your parent did not sign your
application or your SAR. You and your parent must sign the
Certification at the end of Part 2 of this SAR, make any
necessary corrections, and return Part 2 to the address next to
the Certification. If your parent is not able to sign, see your
FAA or High School Counselor.

110 We have not received the signature page from your FAFSA
Express application.

111 We can not process your application submitted through
FAFSA Express until you have signed the Certification at the
end of Part 2 of this SAR and returned it to the address next to
the Certification. If you have provided your parents'
information, they must also sign this SAR. If your parent is
not able to sign, see your FAA or High School Counselor.

112 We have applied a formula to the information from the form

124 Contact the following agency(ies) regarding your defaulted
Federal student loan:

125 It takes approximately four weeks to receive a new SAR once
you send corrections to the address next to the Certification. If
you want to be considered for a Federal Pell Grant, your FAA
must receive your SAR by August 31, 1998, or your last day of
enrollment, whichever comes first. Other student aid programs
have different deadlines. See your FAA for more information.

126 Your application record has been matched with the National
Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). The NSLDS confirmed
that you have made satisfactory arrangements to repay your
defaulted Federal student loan. Therefore, you may be
eligible to receive Federal student financial aid. Contact the
FAA at your school for further information.

127 It may be too late to submit any corrections to your SAR. If
you want to be considered for a Federal Pell Grant, you must
submit a complete, correct SAR to your FAA no later than
August 31, 1998, or your last day of enrollment, whichever
comes first. Other student aid programs have different
deadlines Under certain circumstances, students selected for
verification have an additional 60 days from their last day of
enrollment, or August 31, 1998, to submit a complete, correct
SAR for payment. Contact your FAA for more information.

128 We were unable to determine your eligibility because the
information you submitted on your application or on your
SAR was incomplete or inconsistent. Unless you are
completing verification, it may be too late for you to make
corrections or give us any more information for this year. If
you are still completing verification and you need to correct
your SAR, contact the Financial Aid Administrator at your
school for assistance. We must have your corrected SAR no
later than August 14, 1998.

131 To receive Federal student aid, you cannot be in default on
any U.S. Department of Education student loan. Because of
processing problems we were unable to determine whether
you are in default on a loan. Contact your FAA for more
information.

132 Our records indicate that you are in DEFAULT on a Federal
student loan. You are not eligible to receive any Federal
student aid until your account has been resolved.

133 Our records indicate that you received at least one
overpayment of Federal student aid funds. You are required
by law to repay any funds received from the Federal student
aid programs to which you were not entitled. Until your
overpayment has been repaid in full, you are ineligible to
receive any Federal student assistance. If your overpayment is
on a Pell Grant, contact the U.S. Department of Education at
202-708-4766. Otherwise, contact your FAA.

134 Our records indicate that you are in DEFAULT on at least one
Federal student loan and that you received at least one

137 Your application record was matched successfully with the
National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). However, no
financial aid history information was found for printing on
your SAR.

138 We matched your social security number (SSN) with the
National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), but the name
and date of birth on the NSLDS record did not match the
information on your student aid application. Therefore this
SAR does not contain the financial aid history that is
associated with your reported SSN. You should review your
name, SSN, and date of birth and work with your FAA to
resolve discrepancies.

139 NOTE: You reported a value(s) that exceeds the amount of
space allowed on the SAR. This value appears on your SAR
in boldface type as all nines. Contact your FAA to see how
this affects your calculation.

140 Your application record was matched successfully with the
National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). The NSLDS
confirmed that your social security number is not associated
with any previous financial aid history.

141 You must submit proof of your citizenship status to your FAA
before you can receive any Federal student aid.

142 The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) could not
confirm your statement that you are an eligible noncitizen
because there is a question about your alien registration
number. You must submit proof of your noncitizen
eligibility to your school within 30 days after you give this
SAR to your school. If you fail to submit proof within 30
days, you may be found ineligible for Federal student aid.

143 Your citizenship status has been confirmed by the
Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), and you meet
the citizenship requirements for Federal student aid.

144 The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) did not
confirm your statement that you are an eligible noncitizen.

school within 30 days after you give this SAR to your school.
If you fail to submit proof within 30 days, you may be found
ineligible for Federal student aid.

145 Because of processing problems, the Immigration and
Naturalization Service (INS) was not able to confirm your
statement that you are an eligible noncitizen. You must
submit proof of your eligible noncitizen status to your school
before you may receive Federal student aid.

146 We sent your application to Social Security Administration
(SSA) to verify your citizenship status. The SSA did not
confirm that you are a U.S. citizen. You need to provide your
school with documentation of your citizenship status before
you can receive Federal student aid. If you are an eligible
non-citizen, you must correct item 15 on this SAR and provide
your Alien Registration Number if necessary

147 N/A

148 You did not authorize us to release financial information to

information to consider you for other aid. If you want to

agency, check the "Yes" box for Item 104 on Part 2 of your
SAR.
