We are pleased to announce the availability of an online, self-paced training course that assists with completing the Fiscal Operations Report for 2020–21 and Application to Participate for 2022–23 (FISAP). The FISAP is available on the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) website and must be submitted by Oct. 1, 2021, by schools requesting Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) and Federal Work-Study (FWS) program funds for the 2022–23 Award Year and/or that had either FSEOG and FWS expenditures or Federal Perkins Loan (Perkins Loan) activity for the 2020–21 Award Year.
In this training, we review the sections of the FISAP and discuss commonly made errors when completing the form. The training is intended for financial aid and business office staff who are responsible for completing the FISAP, especially those who are new to completing the form.
This year, we are releasing the training in two parts on the FSA Training Center, located at fsatraining.ed.gov. Line-by-line instructions for the current FISAP form are available now on the FSA Training Center. Later this month, we will update this Training Announcement when the video demonstration portion of the training is available. Both parts of the training course will be available on the FSA Training Center through December 2021.
To access the training, log in to the FSA Training Center with your username and password. After logging in, select “Training Courses” from the main menu bar. From the drop-down menu that appears, choose “FISAP Training" and then select "Start Here" to launch the course.
Note: If you do not have a username and password for the FSA Training Center, click on "Create new account" at the bottom of the login page and follow the instructions to create a username and password.
PDF versions of the current FISAP form and instructions are available on the Knowledge Center website at https://fsapartners.ed.gov/knowledge-center/library/fisap-form-and-instructions/2021-06-01/final-2022-23-fisap-form-instructions-and-desk-reference.
We look forward to your participation in this training opportunity. If you have questions about the FISAP Training course, please send an email to email@example.com.
