Summary: Number of Applications Received by School by Source for 2006-2007 and 2007-2008
Posted on 05-07-2007
The attached reports provide a count of Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSAs) received by the Central Processing System (CPS) from each school for the 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 award years. Each report identifies the source of the application (i.e. paper, electronic, or Web). In addition, the report provides the total number of Web filers from each institution, as well as a list of the top 100 schools for Web filers. The reports are sorted by Federal School Code and are posted in both Excel and PDF format.
We have provided reports for the first quarter of 2007-2008, the identical quarter of 2006-2007 (so you may compare 2007-2008 processing with data from the same time last year), and all cycle-to-date processing through the first quarter for 2006-2007. Please see each report for the specific dates used to run the report.
Please note that the total number of applications on these reports only includes initial (01) transactions, which excludes corrections. Therefore, if a student makes a correction to add your school code and a subsequent transaction is created, that transaction would not be included. The reports do include rejected 01 transactions.
If you have any questions, please contact CPS/SAIG Technical Support at 800/330-5947 (TDD/TTY 800/511-5806) or by e-mail at CPSSAIG@ed.gov.
