Recent File Specification Updates

Financial Aid FileBeginning with the January 2020 financial aid submission, UCOP is requesting the addition of two fields -SHIP Waiver and SHIP Term - in the demographic portion of the CSS Financial Support input (academic and summer) files. The SHIP Waiver (R290) will capture the dollar amount of the SHIP waiver award and the SHIP Term (R300) will capture all of the terms in the academic year when a student is enrolled in SHIP. The R300 field will be cumulative and a student enrolled in SHIP in all terms will have a value of FWS in the final academic year submission.

Details of changes made can be found in the ITLC letter transmitted to ITLC members and Campus Registrars.
