Posted on 02-19-2008
Federal Student Aid is pleased to announce that the 2008-2009 version of the ISIR Analysis Tool is now available through the FAA Main Menu of the FAA Access to CPS Online Web site (http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/FOTWWebApp/faa/faa.jsp).
The ISIR Analysis Tool 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 ISIR Analysis Tool allows you to perform the following functions:
Note: Using the ISIR Analysis Tool does not 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.
2008-2009 Enhancements to the ISIR Analysis Tool
The 2008-2009 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 2007-2008 version of the ISIR Analysis Tool, you do not need to enroll them again for 2008-2009.
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. 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 Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSAs) and ISIR corrections has access to FAA Access to CPS Online by default and can add or modify rights. The DPA or SDPA will need to enroll financial aid staff members for access to FAA Access to CPS Online and to the ISIR Analysis Tool.
Signature pages are not required for FAA Access to CPS Online or ISIR Analysis Tool enrollment.
