RE: RAD Request Bulk Mail Deadline
This is a reminder to EDE institutions requesting RAD records from the CPS for the
1998-99 cycle. All requests for bulk mailing of Renewal Applications to the
institution must be submitted via On-Line Query or the Title IV WAN by noon, Central
time, November 7, 1997. Schools may request bulk mailings of paper Renewal
applications to be mailed out to them either between November 8-17 or on a later
schedule, between January 12-25. Schools must specify one of these delivery
schedules at the time you transmit your request for bulk student records.
Application records not selected by any school for either electronic downloading or
bulk mailing by this date will be printed by the CPS and mailed directly to students
beginning November 18, 1997 and ending on January 2, 1998.
EDE institutions may continue to make RAD requests via On-Line Query or the Title
IV WAN after November 7. The paper print options are no longer available to schools
after this cutoff date, but you will receive the electronic RAD file with a message class
Further details regarding the RAD request process can be found in Action Letter #1
(September, 1997), which can be downloaded from the SFA BBS. Institutions can also
receive a paper copy of Action Letter #1 by calling 1-800-4FEDAID.
