The school admin user has access to create manual correction batches in StudentForms. The admin selects the ISIR Corrections option from the Admin menu.

Please Note: If your school has integrations through CLConnect for ISIR corrections, all ISIR corrections are batched daily to the CLConnect ISIR corrections folder on your network. You may need to request access to this folder if you transmit ISIR corrections from StudentForms through EDConnect.  

On the ISIR correction page the view defaults to the latest open aid year. The admin may need to select the appropriate year button.

The admin selects the files for which they want to create the ISIR correction file. The admin may select them individually by clicking the check box next to the student or by selecting the Select All option. 

Once the files have been selected for the correction file, the admin will need to select the Batch and Download Button at the bottom right of the screen.

The file is downloaded onto the user's computer.  The location varies depending on the browser and computer setup.  

After the file has been downloaded, the admin must save the file to the school's network using the naming convention CORRXXIN (xx is the trailing award year, 17-18 would be 18, 18-19 would be 19), and upload the correction file to either EdConnect or TdClient following their normal process for corrections.  

How to send corrections in EDconnect

The admin also has the ability to view and download prior correction files by selecting the View Prior Batches button, on the bottom right of the screen next to the Batch and Download button.

After selecting the View Prior Batches button, the previous batches screen allows the school user to download correction files by using the Download button.

Schools have the flexibility of batching ISIR corrections as often as they would like.  Each school is encouraged to create a schedule to process corrections to ensure the highest level of efficiency based on its volume.  

If a school has the CL Connect integrations for ISIR corrections, a correction file will be batched daily and sent to their ISIR corrections folder. The school always has the ability to manually batch their correction files through Admin-ISIR Corrections.

ISIR Corrections - Tracking Files in Processing Correction Status

The school user can view the students who are waiting for ISIR corrections through the file review workflow on the Review Completed screen.  

  • Files that have ISIR corrections pending have the transaction status of Processing Corrections.  
  • Once the corrections are received and no additional corrections are required the transaction status updates to verified.  
  • If there are unexpected changes to the ISIR the transaction is placed back into a reviewing file status for the school to review to determine if additional action is required. 
  • If a subsequent ISIR is received requiring additional documents or tasks for the student, the file goes into a re-collecting documents status.  

The file review workflow grids have the ability for sorting, filtering and exporting a .csv document.

Select View All on the File Review Workflow

Select Review Completed from the Transaction Status dropdown.

The review completed workflow may be exported into a CSV file, or have advanced filters applied. The school user may also click on the column headers to sort.
