NOTICE: Campus Input File Re-Submissions

The data being provided to UCOP for systemwide reporting from UC campuses must be validated for accuracy from both a content and format perspective prior to transmission to the systemwide office for processing. UCOP will be able to reload a file only if a subsequent file has not been applied to the data warehouse. If a subsequent file has been loaded into the warehouse, retracting the erroneous information will not be performed.

Student Financial Support File - Beginning with the October 2018 financial aid data submission, UCOP is expanding the length of some fields in the demographic and award portions of the CSS Financial Support input (academic and summer) files. Details of the changes made can be found in the ITLC letter transmitted to ITLC members and Financial Aid Directors.

Health Science Residents File - UCOP is requesting the addition of 2 new data elements to collect data for Specialty Type – Residents (H1004) and Hospital Affiliation Type (H1005) on the Health Sciences Residents file. In addition to this, data for the existing elements Hospital Category Code-Residents (H270) and Previous MD Degree School Code (H290) are no longer needed. These changes are effective for the Health Science Residents file due November 8, 2018. Details of the changes made can be found in the ITLC letter transmitted to ITLC members and Registrars.
