2021-22 MAP Suspense Implemented


Unless otherwise noted, links in this message are to corresponding pages at the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) website (isac.org).

As originally announced last week, ISAC has suspended the announcement of 2021-22 Monetary Award Program (MAP) grants for applicants whose initial 2021-22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is received by the Central Processing System (CPS), or whose initial Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid is received by ISAC, on or after Friday, August 27, 2021.

Starting today (Monday, August 30, 2021), MAP records in suspense status:

  • are reflected in the MAP system;
  • show on the appropriate screens and reports; and,
  • appear in the MAP Eligibility File Extraction.

Identifying Records in Suspense Status

MAP records in suspense status are indicated by a MAP Suspend Code of "S" (S = New application received after the suspense date will not be considered for an award this year) in the MAP system and in the MAP Eligibility File Extraction. The MAP system contains filters that allow you to identify student records and create a report of those records placed in suspense status.

More information about 2021-22 MAP suspense is available in last week's message.
