Subject: 2013-2014 ISIR Guide (February 2013 Update)
We are pleased to announce the posting of an update to the 2013-2014 ISIR Guide. The ISIR Guide assists financial aid administrators (FAAs) in interpreting student information on the Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR). ISIRs contain processed student information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), as well as key processing results and National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) financial aid history information. ISIRs are sent electronically to institutions by the Central Processing System (CPS).
The February 2013 update contains the following revisions:
• Minor revisions to the main section of the guide to correct the SSN Match Flag value of 'Blank' to '8' and update the SSA Citizenship Code description.
• Revision of Appendix C to update several Federal Loan Servicers, ED Servicers, Selected Servicers, and Guaranty Agency values.
For more information on the revisions, consult the tracking log of changes posted with the guide or in the Appendix.
In addition to its current availability on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site, the guide 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
