Here’s how the FinAid team at UT-Chattanooga went from “up to our ears in 399s” to a streamlined, efficient process that helps keep students in school.
Increased potential for conflicting information to appear due to early FAFSA and prior-prior year has given rise to C Code 399. With it come implications for students and extra administrative burden for FA offices. That’s why we built 399 Workbench, a new feature in our StudentForms product.
In August Financial Aid Offices found out from the Department of Education that they would be responsible for managing conflicts identified in tax data across aid years. A.K.A.: a 399 Comment Code. We’re thrilled to announce that 399 Workbench will do the heavy lifting for you. All of it. Here’s why we built it.
Pull up multiple ISIRs for a student side-by-side, perform an audit, and automatically see a comparison screen with comprehensive results outlining discrepant and conflicting info. Quick, easy, and accurate.
Take steps to help State Representatives better understand what role they can play in the early FAFSA and PPY process—and why their involvement is crucial. This Open Letter State Advocacy Template, created in partnership with Mark Kantrowitz, can help.
Financial Aid professionals can (and should) use PPY and early FAFSA changes as an opportunity to reach out to area high schools. Helping college counselors better understand the changes on the horizon can smooth the way for incoming students.
It’s easy to mentally combine PPY and Early FAFSA into one bucket. Not only are they separate, but the positives and negatives of each are vastly different. How does one manage them simultaneously?
Prior-prior year and early FAFSA may affect recruitment efforts, provisional awards, student verification efforts and more for schools. Read on for how Utah State University is getting ready, and how they’ve been lobbying the state for support.
Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how other schools are implementing PPY. Our webinar guests will be Patti Kohler, Director of Financial Aid at Utah State University, and Greg Ryan, Director of Financial Aid at Fullerton College. We'll discuss FinAid tools to manage change and risk, student awareness best practices, and examples of PPY implementation tactics.
