Dear Partner:

We have developed new message class codes for the Borrower Delinquency Report, the Entrance Counseling Report, and the Exit Counseling Report. Beginning with the March 2006 month-end reports that we transmit to you, we will use the new message class codes. Additional information about these and other updated message classes for 2006-2007 is posted in an Electronic Announcement on the IFAP Web site (http://www.ifap.ed.gov/eannouncements/022106UpcomingAutomaticMessageClassUpdate.html).
