Subject: 2010-2011 Application Processing System Specifications for Software Developers (September 2009 Draft)

Federal Student Aid is pleased to announce the posting of an update to the draft of the Application Processing System Specifications for Software Developers for the 2010-2011 cycle.

In this draft, updates have been made to the list of 2010-2011 reject codes to reflect renumbering of some of the reject edits that were included in the initial August 2009 draft.

Please note testing of these specifications will not be complete until January 1, 2010. Software developers should be prepared to receive updates to the specifications until that time.

In addition to its current availability on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site, the specifications 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.

If you have questions, contact CPS/SAIG Technical Support at 800/330-5947 (TDD/TTY 800/511-5806) or by e-mail at CPSSAIG@ed.gov.
