FINAL FUNDING AUTHORIZATIONS FOR THE CAMPUS-BASED PROGRAMS

FSA announced the release of award year 2020-2021 Final Funding Authorizations for the Federal Work-Study and Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grant allocations. As a result of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2020t and the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2020 $1,180,000,000 in FWS and $865,000,000 in FSEOG are available to institutions in the upcoming award year.

FSA will be notifying schools that their 2020-2021 Campus Based-Allocation has been posted on the COD website. To find out how much your school has been allocated follow these steps:

Log in to the COD website

From the School tab, select “Campus-Based” from the left navigation menu

Select the “Self-Service” link from the left navigation menu, then “Notifications”

REALLOCATION AND SUPPLEMENTAL CAMPUS BASED FUNDS DEADLINE

If you’ve got leftover funds that you won’t spend from the 2017-2018 Federal Work-Study (FWS) or Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), you should complete the Campus Based Reallocation Form by August 13, 2018 so that other schools can use them. The campus-based reallocation form can also be used by institutions that want to request supplemental 2018-2019 Federal Work Study Funds for employing students in community service jobs. To qualify, schools must have had an FWS fair share shortfall as shown on line 28 of the school’s 2018-2019 final funding worksheet.

The reallocation form can be found on the COD website. For more information including a sample of the form, click this electronic announcement from FSA.

CAMPUS BASED FUNDING USER ACCESS TO COD

Federal Student Aid is transitioning business processes for the Campus-Based programs to the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System during March 23-25, 2018. Schools will begin using the COD System for Campus-Based business processes on March 26, 2018.

To access the system, users will need to:

  • be enrolled for the COD Online Service by a school’s (or Third-Party Servicer’s) Primary Destination Point Administrator (PDPA) via the Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) Enrollment website
  • have an FSA User ID and password
  • have a valid/registered Two-Factor Authentication (TFA) token

If you’re already a eCB user and a COD user, you’ll probably get access automatically. But if you aren’t you’ll need to request access through your Primary Destination Point Administrator, get a TFA token and get a FSA User ID and password. Instructions and stuff are here.
