The ISIR Analysis Tool Web application is designed for any school that wants to review and analyze its Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) data and better understand certain characteristics about its Title IV applicant population and verification process (either selected by the U.S. Department of Education or defined by the school). The Web site allows you to perform the following functions:
Note: Using the ISIR Analysis Tool does not necessarily mean that your school is in the QA Program or is exempt from federal verification requirements. To have these benefits, you must have a signed QA Amendment to your Title IV Program Participation Agreement (PPA).
You must have Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 5.5 or higher as your browser in order to utilize the reporting features available in the ISIR Analysis Tool.
2007-2008 Enhancements to the ISIR Analysis Tool
The 2007-2008 version of the ISIR Analysis Tool includes the following enhancements:
Enrollment for the ISIR Analysis Tool
If you already enrolled your staff for access to the 2006-2007 version of the ISIR Analysis Tool Web site, you do not need to enroll them again for 2007-2008.
However, for those staff currently not enrolled, you will need to enroll each user for both FAA Access to CPS Online and the ISIR Analysis Tool specifically to access the ISIR Analysis Tool Web site. The Destination Point Administrator (DPA) or Secondary Destination Point Administrator (SDPA) of the TG number currently used by your school to send and receive Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSAs) and ISIR corrections has access to the FAA Access to CPS Online Web site by default and can add or modify rights. The DPA or SDPA will need to enroll financial aid staff members for access to the FAA Access to CPS Online and the ISIR Analysis Tool Web sites.
You can easily sign up financial aid staff members for FAA Access to CPS Online and the ISIR Analysis Tool on the SAIG Enrollment Web site, located at http://fsawebenroll.ed.gov.
Signature pages are not required for FAA Access to CPS Online or ISIR Analysis Tool enrollment.
