Subject: 2010-2011 COD System Peak Processing Reminders

In January 2011, we will begin another peak processing period for the 2010-2011 Award Year. To assist schools with planning and processing, we remind you of the following:

  • Origination and disbursement responses are processed throughout the day and are often sent to schools within hours. During this peak period, batch processing may take longer. In the event batch processing takes longer than 24 hours, the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) School Relations Center will contact affected schools on the next business day.

  • Note: Mondays and Tuesdays are the heaviest processing days. If a school has system flexibility in the scheduling of batch submissions, it may want to consider sending data on alternative days.

  • All system-generated responses are processed once a day (except Sunday) at 2:30 A.M. (ET) for activity that occurred the preceding day. During this peak period, we plan to also process system-generated responses on Sunday. As with batches, in the event system-generated response processing takes longer than 24 hours, the COD School Relations Center will contact affected schools on the next business day. This includes the following system-generated responses:

  • Booking Notification (BN)
  • Credit Decision Override (CO)
  • Entrance Counseling (EC)
  • Negative Disbursement (ND)
  • Payment to Servicer (PS)
  • PLUS Request Acknowledgement (SP)
  • Promissory Note (PN)
  • TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve (AT)
  • TEACH Grant Counseling (AC)

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this peak processing period.
