Incorrect NSLDS Financial Aid History Data

PublicationDate: 4/6/2000
Summary: Incorrect NSLDS Financial Aid History Data
Author: NSLDS - National Student Loan Data System

Posted on April 6, 2000

TO: Schools Participating in Title IV Aid Programs
FROM: U.S. Department of Education
SUBJECT: Incorrect NSLDS Financial Aid History Data

NSLDS recently prepared incorrect data on ISIR records during the period of March 23-31. The incorrect data is found in the NSLDS Financial Aid History Section of the 1999-2000 award cycle and consists of an incorrect Pell EFC and subsequent Pell fields in the file. NOTE: This field is the historical EFC for previous Pell payments and is not the calculated EFC used to award students for the current year. Less than 10,213 records were affected.
New ISIRs will be generated for those that were sent with incorrect data. CPS will process the new data on Monday, 4/10/2000, and the ISIRs will be sent to schools in the system generated message class of SARA00OP, with a batch number of #Z000000020000406142523. All the ISIRs will have a system generated indicator (ISIR field 135, position 554) set to N.
We apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused you and your students. If you have any questions, contact NSLDS at 800-999-8219.
