Your school policies and procedures should determine what action should be taken regarding the comment codes that appear on a student’s ISIR. StudentVerification provides a short description of the comment codes that appear on a student's ISIR.  The links to the comment codes appear in the student ISIR information section at the top of the transaction and account pages, in the New ISIR report and in the Actionable ISIR report. You may also find additional information regarding comment codes in SAR Comment Codes and Text guide.
