Summary: COD Processing Alert – Batch Processing Resumed Thursday, January 24, 2008
Posted on 01-24-2008
In an earlier January 24, 2008 Electronic Announcement, we informed schools of an issue with the processing of batches submitted to the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System. For this reason, we had placed batch processing on hold beginning at 12:00 P.M. (ET) on Wednesday, January 23, 2008.
We have now resolved the issue and resumed batch processing. We expect to have the majority, if not all, of the outstanding batches processed and acknowledged back to schools by early Friday, January 25, 2008.
As a reminder, affected schools should refrain from resubmitting batches. Batch resubmission will result in unnecessary error messages.
Again, we apologize for the inconvenience caused by this issue and appreciate your patience and understanding. We will post a final status update on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site on Friday, January 25, 2008.
