Subject: 2010-2011 ISIR Guide (October 2010 Update)

We are pleased to announce the posting of the updated 2010-2011 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 October 2010 update includes revisions to Reject 1, Reject 4, and Reject 19 information in Appendix A and a revision to comment 009 in Appendix B. For more information, consult the tracking log of changes posted with the reference or Appendix F in the updated guide.
