Subject: Number of Applications Received by School by Source for 2007-2008 and 2008-2009

The attached reports provide a count of Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSAs) received by the Central Processing System (CPS) from each school for the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 award years. Each report identifies the source of the application (i.e. paper, electronic, or Web). In addition, the report provides the total number of Web filers from each institution, as well as a list of the top 100 schools for Web filers. The reports are sorted by Federal School Code and are posted in both Excel and PDF.

Current Reports

We have provided reports for the fourth quarter of 2008-2009 (all processing to date), the identical quarter of 2007-2008 (so you may compare 2008-2009 processing with data from the same time last year), and all processing to date for 2007-2008. Please see each report for the specific dates covered by the report.


  • The total number of applications on these reports only includes initial (01) transactions, which excludes corrections. Therefore, if a student makes a correction to add your school code and a subsequent transaction is created, that transaction would not be included.
  • The reports do include rejected 01 transactions.
  • The column “Electronic Original Student Entry” refers to the submission of FAFSA data using the Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) process.
  • These reports are run on a quarterly basis. The number of weeks in each quarter may vary by award year. Please keep that in mind if you use the data in the reports to perform a comparison between award years.
