Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce the availability of an online, self-paced training module that assists with completing the Fiscal Operations Report for 2019–20 and Application to Participate for 2021–22 (FISAP). This FISAP is available on the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) website and must be submitted no later than Nov. 2, 2020 by schools requesting Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) and Federal Work-Study (FWS) program funds for the 2021–22 Award Year and/or that had either FSEOG and FWS expenditures or Federal Perkins Loan (Perkins Loan) activity for the 2019–20 Award Year.
