RE: Tip of the Week - Pell Payment for Windows: Submission Status Report
This week's Tip: Using the Submission Status Report in Pell Payment for Windows
Feature/Process: In the Pell Payment for Windows software under File/Print is a report
called Submission Status. This report will display the EFC, Amount Paid, Remaining
Amount to be Paid, and Database/Record Status for each student, as well as total
amounts for all students. You can choose "Not Selected" to get a list of those records
with modified data not selected to submit to Pell, or "Selected" to get a list of records
ready to send to Pell.
Why you should use it: You can use the "Selected" option to double-check your
amounts before exporting payment data to the Pell processor, and to have a list of those
students in the export batch. We recommend writing the batch sequence number and
PREQ file name on this report once you have exported for tracking purposes. You can
use the "Not Selected" option to locate any "Q" (saved without edits) or "C" (changed
information after batching) status records that have not yet been batched.
Note: There are some instances where it is appropriate to have a "Not Selected" status.
For example, if you zero out a payment record because you received a higher ISIR
transaction for the same student which you are now paying on and have reported to Pell,
you would not want to send the original, zeroed-out record to Pell (and hence would
leave it "not selected").
