Subject: Update on Changes to the Listing of Colleges on ISIRs Provided to State Grant Agencies

On June 8, 2016 we posted an Electronic Announcement stating that, beginning with 2018-2019 FAFSAs, ISIRs provided to state grant agencies will include the colleges listed on students’ FAFSAs in a random order and not in the order in which the student listed the colleges.

This Electronic Announcement informs the community that we will not be making this change and ISIRs sent to state grant agencies will continue to present the colleges in the order they were listed by the student on the FAFSA.  Note that we continue to not include the listing of colleges on ISIRs provided to postsecondary institutions.

We thank the community for their input and patience on this matter.
