Subject: 2012-2013 ISIR Guide (December 2011 Update)

We are pleased to announce the posting of an update to the 2012-2013 ISIR Guide. The ISIR Guide assists financial aid administrators (FAAs) in interpreting student information on the Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR). ISIRs contain processed student information reported on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), as well as key processing results and National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) financial aid history information. ISIRs are sent electronically to institutions by the Central Processing System (CPS).

The December 2011 update contains minor revisions to Appendix E to update the sample of the ISIR output document. For more information on the revisions, consult the tracking log of changes posted with the guide or Appendix F in the updated guide.

In addition to its current availability on the IFAP Web site, the updated guide 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.
