2021-2022 EDE Technical Reference (July 2020 Update)

We are pleased to announce the posting of the updated version of the 2021-2022 Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) Technical Reference. The EDE Technical Reference provides programmer specifications, record layouts, and other detailed information for schools or other organizations that need to design software systems to interface with Federal Student Aid’s application processing system.

In the July 2020 update, we revised several incorrect Institutional Student Information Record start and end positions in the Field Name and Position Cross Reference table in Section 4 (Processing Codes). For more information, see the Change History Table posted with the July 2020 update.

If you have questions, contact CPS/SAIG Technical Support at 1-800-330-5947 or by email at CPSSAIG@ed.gov.
