Overview
Department & School Responsibilities
ED will calculate and inform students and schools using
additional data reported by schools.
CPS
• Inform school of
first-time
borrower and
progress toward
limit
• Inform student
that they are
subject to a limit
COD
• Determine who is
a first-time
borrower
• Calculate MEP,
REP and SUP
• Reject loans
• Inform schools
NSLDS
• Determine
eligibility for
interest subsidy
Loan Servicers
• Communicate
with borrower
• Stop subsidy

COD Academic Year Schema Tags
Specific AY & LP Guidance GEN 13-13 given for 2013-2014
 A Direct Loan’s academic year tags in the
COD schema are <AcademicYearBeginDate>
and <AcademicYearEndDate>.
 Schools must populate these tags with the
exact beginning and ending dates of the
loan’s academic year (the period to which the
annual loan limit applies).
 A summer term that is treated as a header or trailer to a
Scheduled Academic Year must be included in the
academic year dates only if the student will actually be 9
receiving that Direct Loan type for the summer.
COD Loan Period Schema Tags
Specific AY & LP Guidance GEN 13-13 given for 2013-2014
 A Direct Loan’s loan period tags in the COD
schema are <FinancialAwardBeginDate> and
<FinancialAwardEndDate>.
 These tags must be populated with the exact dates of the
loan period of the loan, and may need to be updated
based on the student's actual enrollment or other eligibility
issues.

• Option 1: Originate a new loan for the summer term and
extend the academic year ending date for the existing fallspring loan to include the summer term. Marquette uses
this option. All Summer awarding done on separate Item
type
• Option 2: Increase the loan amount of the existing fallspring loan and extend both the loan period and the
academic year ending dates to include the summer term. 11

AYLP-Q4: Will all loan types necessarily have the same loan period and
academic year dates?
AYLP-A4: No. There are circumstances in which different loan types would have
different loan periods or academic years. For example, if a school uses a
scheduled academic year consisting of fall and spring semesters, with the
summer term treated as a trailer to the scheduled academic year, and the student
receives all Direct Subsidized Loan eligibility for fall and spring, does not receive
all Direct Unsubsidized Loan eligibility for the fall and spring semesters, and then
attends the summer term and requests a loan, the Direct Subsidized Loan would
have a loan period and academic year consisting of the fall and spring semesters,
and the Direct Unsubsidized Loan(s) would have loan period(s) and academic
year(s) spanning the fall, spring, and summer terms. [December 20, 2013]

Can you award a Sub Loan?

that is <= REP?
• If REP is >= 1, the answer is always “YES”

Can you award a Sub Loan?
You can determine if REP >= 1 by:
1. Getting Program Length (PL) from Acad Plan Table
2.Determine MEP = PL * 1.5
3.Determine SUP = SFA_NSLDS_LN_ELIG
4.Determine REP = MEP – SUP
5.Sub Eligible if REP >= 1

Q: What about schools that have UGRD

A: You need to use the Dept. of Ed math to
determine a corresponding Year value for MEP
when determining REP.
See Gen 13-13 guidance and training on how to
do so.

Tips and Tricks: SULA Advanced
SULA Advanced Rules impact setup needed
• There are advanced rules for SULA that require
additional fields
– Enrollment used to prorate. Is reported at the time of:
• Origination
• Finalized in each disbursement ‘bucket’
– NCTC Teacher Cert - excluded
• Has a different ‘buckets’ for Sub
– Some 2 year Programs need schools to report 4 year as
Program Length
– Prep Coursework treated differently based on
• Grad
• Undergraduate

Tips and Tricks: SULA Advanced
SULA Curiosities
– Assumption for determining award in basic example:
• SUP on NSLDS record will be correct.
– Noticed in 2014-2015 examples of FAH having SUP then subsequent
ISIR has no value  would lead to problems
• Relying on COD reject or CRSU information too late in process
• If packaging after some AY loan has paid:
– When one dri = true for one bucket SUP increased for whole loan
• Packaging Basic Example was for an AY loan
– If doing a loan for one semester remember the extra rules:
» Usage is Prorated days in LP/ Days in AY and rounded
» If Max Loan in one semester Usage will equal 1
» After Max loan rule then Prorate for enrollment
– Option 1 from basic AY/LP if change in Grade Level Usage > 1
• DON’T depend on COD to reject as Best Practice

 Is enrollment Half time, then Yes.  Must Originate with ½ Enrollment
 Is enrollment ¾ time or Full time, then No for AY.  Only elig for Unsub**.

Can you award a Sub Loan for the one Sem?
If
REP is < usage in the semester the answer is Maybe.


Cannot award full Sub Amount or SUP= 1
In this example:

Sub loan Fall only: Usage = .4 LP=Fall AY Fall/Spring Amount:5499  You must award this
way

Unsub loan for the Spring LP=Spring AY Fall/Spring Amount:2001
Schools should NOT package SUB when they expect the student to enroll in a manner that would cause the student to have a
subsidized usage period that exceeds the student’s remaining eligibility period.
If a student turns out to enroll less than full time, then you could go back and repackage the student with subsidized loan funds
and reduce the unsubsidized award by the amount of the subsidized loan for which they are eligible.
Alternatively, if you package after a student actually enrolls (and has registered for classes), you could rely on a student’s
registration as being full-time, half-time, etc., before making a decision about whether and to package.

• Changes in SULA are a great opportunity
to know more about DL.
• You learned about:
– Process Loan Dates, why they matter
– SULA setup, tricks and tips
– Reviewing your CRSU files, what to do with
them.
– Awarding ideas in the future for students with
less than 1 REP left.

XML Schema Validation

– “COD System Warning Edit 211 (5/20/14)”

When trying to determine why a file failed schema validation, use
the file the school sent to COD, not the response file.

Ex: Determine Remaining Eligibility Period (REP)
Student receives 1 year of Direct Subsidized Loans while
enrolled in a 2-year program. Student transfers to a 1-year
clock-hour program.
Maximum
Eligibility
Period
All
Subsidized
Usage
Periods
Remaining
Eligibility
Period
After year 1 of 2year program
Upon transfer to 1year cert. program
Maximum Eligibility Period
3 Years
1.5 Years
All Subsidized Usage Periods
1 Year
1 Year
Remaining Eligibility Period
2 Years
0.5 Years
Minimum loan period length in a clock-hour program is lesser of length of program or
academic year. School cannot disburse a Direct Subsidized Loan to this student.
115
Enrollment School Code
The <EnrollmentSchoolCode> tag seems to still be
a “mystery” to some schools…
• The <EnrollmentSchoolCode> tag indicates the physical location
where the student is attending class
• Must be reported with each actual disbursement submitted to
COD
• Some vendor software does NOT identify this tag clearly
• A back-end process combines the first six digits of the OPE
ID and a branch campus ID
• An OPE ID is NOT 6-digits…some vendor software does
NOT identify the OPE ID correctly
116
2015-2016 non SULA changes
Value of R and new SAR Comments
• A value of R will be added to the current
loan limit flags. R will be defined as
‘Exceeded loan limit and reaffirmed debt’.
– A SAR comment will be added for a value of R
in the Undergraduate Subsidized or
Combined Loan Limit Flags.
– A SAR comment will be added for a value of R
in the Graduate Subsidized or Combined
Loan Limit Flags.
– The SAR C flag will be set by the new
comments.
