iLibrary - CPS Test System

The CPS Test System is designed to allow schools to test electronic application and/or correction data from their system with the CPS. This testing is done outside the normal CPS production environment. The CPS will provide test files of application records and matching ISIRs to be used for the tests. As an alternative, schools can submit application and renewal records they have created to match the school's expected results. To submit test correction records that have been created by the CPS, the school will need to call CPS/SAIG Technical Support for record IDs that will process successfully in the CPS Test System. The CPS Test System also has demos for fafsa.gov in English and Spanish and FAA Access to CPS Online. For questions regarding the CPS Test System, please contact CPS/SAIG Technical Support at 1-800-330-5947, or via email at CPSSAIG@ed.gov.
