Federal Student Aid is pleased to announce the posting of the final 2017-2018 Application Processing System Specifications for Software Developers.

In this version, we corrected the third row under the Student’s Contribution column in the Adjusted Available Income (AAI) Taxation tables, corrected the header for the Business/Farm Net Worth Adjustment table, and fixed incorrect year references in column headers in the Asset Protection Allowance (APA) tables.

In addition to its current availability on Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) website, the specifications will also be available in the next several days from the Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site, located at https://www.fsadownload.ed.gov.
