Our Federal offices as well as some of our Title IV processors and call centers will be closed on Monday, January 21, 2008 to observe the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday.
The Central Processing System (CPS) will accept data on Monday, January 21, 2008 but will not process new Institutional Student Information Records (ISIRs) until Tuesday, January 22, 2008.
The Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System will accept and process data from schools and send back responses/acknowledgments on Monday, January 21, 2008, but schools will not be able to receive any Federal funds on that day. Requests for changes in funding levels and for funds will not be processed until Tuesday, January 22, 2008.
