The Central Processing System (CPS) will not process applications or corrections through the Prisoner Match when processing of 2000-01 applications and corrections starts on January 14, 2000. We anticipate the Prisoner Match will start on or about February 1, 2000.
Otherwise, CPS will process applications and corrections as usual. The records processed between January 14 and when the Prisoner Match becomes operational will not have Prisoner Match flags or corresponding comments provided. Financial Aid Administrators are not required to follow up on these records regarding the Prisoner Match. We also do not anticipate the need to reprocess any records.
If you have questions, please call CPS Customer Service at 1-800-330-5947.
