Subject: No CPS Processing on December 24, 2012

The President signed an Executive Order on December 21, 2012, closing the federal government on Monday, December 24, 2012. As a result, the Central Processing System (CPS) did not process records on that day. The CPS accepted data on December 24, 2012, as well as on December 25, but did not process new Institutional Student Information Records (ISIRs) until Wednesday, December 26, 2012.

You may receive larger-than-usual ISIR files in your Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) mailbox as a result of this processing change.
