2019-20 MAP Payment Update

03/26/2020

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

The following information is being shared to assist colleges in the administration of the Monetary Award Program (MAP). Despite the unprecedented circumstances, and in order to best help students, we will continue making every effort to keep program operations as close as possible to "business as usual" during these unusual times.

Payment of 2019-20 MAP Late Claims

Following the recently-announced second limited release of 2019-20 MAP award announcements in suspense status, we are pleased to inform you that late payment requests (claims) are being paid for all terms.

2019-20 MAP Claims Due June 1

All 2019-20 MAP claims submitted on or before Monday, June 1, 2020 – including previously-held late claims from the first and second terms – are being paid.

2019-20 MAP claims submitted after June 1 will be held as late, and paid only if available funds remain after payment has been made for all claims submitted by the June 1 deadline.

Payment Results in MAP System

Payment results for first- and second-term claims that were being held as late are now available for colleges to access in the 2019-20 MAP system. Future results for claims submitted through (including) June 1 will appear in the MAP system per the standard processing schedule.

Visit the MAP Payment page, located within the MAP section of the ISAC Gift Assistance Programs area, for more information regarding the claims process. In addition, the 2019-20 MAP Applicant Award Status Chart – which has been updated to reflect the second limited release of suspense – may be a helpful resource.
