6 Starting June 23, 2014, ED Express (R3) will allow schools to import a new message class generated by COD as part of an annual origination fee clean-up effort (CROFyyOP). Express will support CROFyyOP file import for cycle years 14-15 and forward. COD Origination and Interest Rebate Percentage Acknowledgement

9 Express’ functionality for importing Direct Loan External Add and External Change files will also be updated to support import of values for the new Program Profile Code field on Express. Program Profile Codes enable Express schools to set up a short cut to data entry for several of the School-Reported Program Information Fields. Once established via COD Setup in Express, Program Profile Codes are read by Express upon import, and Express “pushes” the appropriate values for several of the School-Reporting Program Information fields to the origination record. Note: CIP code, Enrollment Status, Payment Period Start Date, and Sub Usage Limit Applies are not part of a Program Profile. Subsidized Usage Limit Applies (SULA) Updates
10 Express – Import – Direct Loan External Change file Functionality will be updated to support import of change data for CIP, Payment Period Start Date, and Enrollment Status for actual disbursements. Actual Disbursement change transactions will be marked using Express’ “action type” field. Express will support import of new “Action Type” values associated with disbursements via External Change files (C, T, S respectively), so that these transactions can be properly exported to COD. Subsidized Usage Limit Applies (SULA) Updates

17 Updates to edit logic for Express 2014-2015 R3 affect not only origination and disbursement functions for Direct Loans and TEACH in EDExpress, but also file imports. Combination system developers should be aware of the following edits updates. (SULA) Updates: Edits

Additional edits around change records were added (ex. 3076, 3077) and others updated (ex. 2010, 3042) in support of the new SULA fields. *A detailed list of all updated Express edits can be found in the COD Technical Reference, Volume 3, Section 4, upon final posting in June. (SULA) Updates: Edits
19 (SULA) Updates: Edits TEACH edits will be updated to ensure that CIP Code and Enrollment Status fields are not left blank. 5011 and 5012 Description: These edits occur if the CIP Code (edit 5011) or Enrollment Status (edit 5012) field is blank in the External TEACH Grant Data file and you select the “Include Records in Next Document Submission?” checkbox in the EDExpress TEACH Grant import dialog box. Both field values are required before a TEACH Grant record is ready for export to the COD System. Resolution Steps: Add the CIP Code or Enrollment Status value to the External TEACH Grant Data file.
