RE: 1998-99 Renewal Application Data (RAD) Request Process
We are pleased to announce that eligible EDE destination points can begin making
Renewal Application Data (RAD) requests electronically for the 1998-99 academic
cycle beginning October 6, 1997. Requests that involve CPS printing of Renewal
Applications will be accepted by the CPS and processed daily through November 7,
After November 7, CPS will print and mail Renewal Applications directly to eligible
students. Institutions can continue to make RAD requests after November 7, but the
CPS print option will no longer be available.
Action Letter #1, explaining the RAD request process in detail, will be mailed to all
institutions beginning September 26, 1997. In the meantime, recognizing that
institutions may want quicker access to this information, Action Letter #1 was posted
to the SFA BBS on September 17, 1997.
To participate in the Renewal Application process via EDE please ensure the following
two items are correct:
1. You are productional for either electronic automatic ISIRS or renewal applications
for 1997-98 or 1998-99.
2. You are enrolled for Renewal application processing. You can verify this by
checking your Title IV WAN Participation Agreement and ensure you marked the box
next to either Renewal Applications or all EDE services.
Institutions not properly enrolled for Renewal Applications will receive error
messages or rejected batches, or both, when trying to make a RAD request.
You can verify your current enrollment status by using Title IV WAN On-line Query or
by calling Title IV WAN Customer Service at 1-800-615-1189.
If you have any questions regarding the RAD request process, please contact CPS
