EASFAA State Wide Training

SAR/ISIR Comment Codes Training

EASFAA Partners with State Associations to Offer SAR/ISIR Comment Codes Training
EASFAA is partnering with the state associations in our region to deliver in-person, SAR Comment Codes training for any EASFAA member to attend for free. Not an EASFAA member? You will be required to join to take advantage of this great training event, as well as the entire year of EASFAA training, by paying the $50 annual membership dues as part of the registration process. Training sites and dates are listed below. 

SAR Comment Codes was recently produced by NASFAA. The workshop provides attendees with an in-depth training on comment codes. The goals of the workshop are to recognize the most common comment codes assigned – focusing on the codes related to database matches, understand the possible reason(s) that specific comment codes are assigned, and determine when a comment code must be resolved and the action the student and/or school must take to correct the situation so the student is not prevented from receiving additional Title IV aid.   

The SAR Comment Code training provides an opportunity to exchange best practice tips with colleagues and ensure compliance with documentation required in C-Code resolution. The new comment codes related to the IRS DRT process for the 2018/2019 FAFSA will be reviewed and discussed. 

The training materials include case studies and a comprehensive resource list. 

EASFAA is pleased to provide expert financial aid administrators, who have a wealth of comment code experience, as trainers to present the material.
