EDconnect is a Windows-based software that assists users with sending, receiving, and managing their Federal student aid information electronically. Users collect data on their personal computer (PC) or computer system and transmit the collected data in batches over the Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG). The appropriate Title IV Application System receives the data, processes the data, performs any required database cross-referencing, and returns the processed data to the user’s SAIG mailbox. The entire processing cycle for routine application data within the SAIG system is typically 72 hours (three working days).
