GENERAL INFORMATION

Removal of 75-hour Limit on MAP Paid Credit Hours

As indicated in a January 6 e-Message, the 75-hour limit on Monetary Award Program (MAP) paid credit hours was lifted on January 1, 2020, which was the effective date of the Retention of Illinois Students and Equity (RISE) Act. The removal impacts the spring semester/second and third quarters of the 2019-20 award year, as well as all terms in the 2020-21 and subsequent academic years.

Please note: The overall maximum of 135 MAP paid credit hours remains in effect. Providing this information to students can create an opportunity to counsel them on the importance of steady progression toward their education goals, so any future MAP eligibility is not exhausted before their degrees are completed.

2019-20 ACADEMIC YEAR

March 1: Spring Term Application Deadline for ING Grant

Remind your students that March 1, 2020 is the spring- and summer-term application deadline for the 2019-20 Illinois National Guard (ING) Grant Program. Students may access the application via the Applications page (which is located within the Students & ParentsDuring CollegeApplying for Financial Aid area, and may also be obtained via the "Applications" link that appears at the bottom of all pages on the ISAC website). Applications received after March 1 will be considered for summer term only awards.

March 1: Spring Term Application Deadline for Grant Programs for Dependents of Police, Fire, or Correctional Officers

Remind your students that March 1, 2020 is the spring- and summer-term award deadline for the 2019-20 Grant Program for Dependents of Police, Fire, and Correctional Officers. Students may access the application via the Students & ParentsDuring CollegeApplying for Financial Aid area, and may also be obtained via the "Applications" link that appears at the bottom of all pages on the ISAC website). Applications received after March 1 will be considered for summer term only awards.

March 6: MAP Second-term Claims Due

In order to be considered for payment, all 2019-20 MAP second-term claims must be submitted to ISAC no later than Friday, March 6, 2020.

Remember that, because removal of the 75-hour limit on MAP paid credit hours took effect in the middle of the 2019-20 academic year, some students who were not MAP-eligible in the fall 2019 term now may be eligible for spring-term awards. Student records previously designated as ineligible [V code (reached 75 MAP paid credit hours)] within the MAP system should be reviewed and, if applicable, included with spring-term payment requests.

Further details may be found in a January 6 e-Message.

Late March/Early April: Spring-Term Benefit Usage Data Due for ISAC-Administered Military Programs

With the fall-term deadlines having passed in December, ISAC is accepting spring-term benefit usage data for the 2019-20 Illinois National Guard (ING) Grant and Illinois Veteran Grant (IVG) programs. Although ISAC is not able to reimburse institutions for 2019-20 military program awards, reporting of benefits used must still take place so that usage can be accurately reflected on students' accounts.

Benefit usage data for the ING Grant and IVG programs is submitted to ISAC by colleges via functionality within each program's system, allowing colleges to report students' enrollment hours and benefit dollar amounts for initial, in-district and out-of-district requests. Further details are provided in the ING Grant and IVG user guides.

While new data could potentially be available on a daily basis, the college may not have students that appear in the systems each day. It is recommended that the college check each program's system at least once a week for new student data that may have been posted for the 2019-20 academic year.

Data for the spring term will be due in late March or early April (colleges will be notified once a specific deadline date has been established for each program). However, colleges are encouraged to submit data as soon as they are able to do so.

See the January 8 e-Message for additional details.

Continue Submitting Payment Requests for MTI Scholarship and Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois Programs

Payment requests (claims) for the 2019-20 Minority Teachers of Illinois (MTI) Scholarship and Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois programs continue to be accepted for first and second terms. Submitting claims via the MTI and Golden Apple systems is a two-step process that involves first generating the request (either individually or in a batch) and then submitting the request. Further details are available in an October 18 e-Message, as well as in the MTI and Golden Apple user guides.

In addition, colleges are encouraged to continue certifying eligibility for 2019-20 MTI Scholars. Remember that – effective with 2019-20 processing – the Golden Apple Foundation, rather than colleges, certifies eligibility for Golden Apple Scholars (colleges can see whether a student has been certified by viewing the "Student List Eligibility: View" screen within the Golden Apple system).

See the January 8 e-Message for additional details.


2020-21 ACADEMIC YEAR

March 1: MTI Scholarship Application Deadline
(Application Anticipated to be Available Later this Month)

Remind your students who plan to pursue a career in teaching that March 1, 2020 is the priority application consideration date for the 2020-21 MTI Scholarship Program. Once available (anticipated for later this month), students will access the application via the Applications page (which is located within the Students & ParentsDuring CollegeApplying for Financial Aid area, and may also be obtained via the "Applications" link that appears at the bottom of all pages on the ISAC website). Complete applications received after this date will be considered only if funding remains after all timely complete applicants have been awarded. Encourage all minority students who meet the program's eligibility requirements to apply as soon as possible.

March 1: Illinois SETTW Application Deadline
(Application Anticipated to be Available Later this Month)

Public four-year institutions: remind your students who plan to pursue a career in teaching that March 1, 2020 is the priority application consideration date for the 2020-21 Illinois Special Education Teacher Tuition Waiver (SETTW) Program. Once available (anticipated for later this month), students will access the application via the Applications page (which is located within the Students & ParentsDuring CollegeApplying for Financial Aid area, and may also be obtained via the "Applications" link that appears at the bottom of all pages on the ISAC website). Complete applications received after this date will be considered only if funding remains after all timely complete applicants have been awarded.

FAFSA® Still Available

The 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is still available online, and – if not already done – should be completed and submitted as soon as possible by students who will be attending college between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. FAFSA results are used to determine eligibility for several forms of federal, state and institutional financial assistance, including MAP.

Encourage your students to check out the Financial Aid Planning section of the Students & Parents area for information regarding resources that are available to help them complete the financial aid process. In addition, access is provided to a listing of several events – including financial aid presentations – that are being offered across the State of Illinois. Students may attend the event that best fits their schedule.

Details regarding the 2020-21 application cycle may be accessed via the Applying for Financial Aid section of the e-Library for Partners.

Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid Available

As indicated in a January 6 e-Message, undocumented and transgender students meeting the criteria of the RISE Act may file the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid – which is patterned after the FAFSA – to apply for the MAP grant. Further details, including access to the application, are provided at the RISE Act page.

ISAC will create Alternative Application Student Records for students who complete the 2020-21 Alternative Application. Access the School File Layout Specifications document – which includes Alternative Application Student Record field names, field lengths, and start and end positions for each data element – via the Electronic Tools page of the e-Library for Partners.

CCE 2020: Be the Change

We hope you'll join us on Thursday, July 9, 2020 at the tenth annual College Changes Everything® (CCE) Conference – the state's preeminent annual college access and success and career readiness event. This one-day conference focuses on effective practices and showcases the programs and services available to help with increasing college access and college completion for students in support of the state's Goal 2025 – to increase the proportion of adults in Illinois with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60% by the year 2025. For our state to reach this goal, stakeholders that make up all aspects of any student's community must work together to support and provide students with the knowledge and opportunities to be successful along the transitions from education to employment.

Call for Proposals: Due February 28, 2020 – Please Share Your Knowledge and Expertise

The Conference Planning Committee is making a call for interest session proposals for the 2020 conference. We encourage you to help make this conference a valuable professional development experience by sharing with your colleagues your best practices, perspectives, and knowledge. The online session proposal form is available on the conference website.

As the conference draws a broad group of professionals and stakeholders, we welcome proposals that cover a wide range of topics related to college access and completion and career readiness. Such topics might include, but are not limited to: college and career readiness; student retention, persistence, and completion; programs and services for underrepresented students; educational equity; career and technical education; partnerships; career development experiences; education, business, and the economy; college costs, financial aid, and affordability; and community stakeholder engagement.

Each session should provide in-depth information, practical ideas, and best practices for the audience and demonstrate positive steps taken and lessons learned. Conference attendees appreciate the opportunity to hear from the students being served by the program(s) and/or service(s) included in a session. To that end, we encourage you to include students in your sessions when possible.

  • Deadline – Priority consideration will be given to completed session proposal forms submitted by Friday, February 28, 2020.
  • Non-Commercial Policy – Please note that sessions are to be non-commercial forums. Individuals should refrain from using brand names or endorsing specific products. Sessions are not to be used as a place for direct promotion of products and services.
  • Conference Registration – Presenters are to register for the conference, and the registration fee is $40.00. Conference registration will open later this spring.
  • Presenter Compensation – The College Changes Everything® Conference does not provide any compensation for individuals accepted to serve as conference interest session presenters. This includes compensation for travel-related expenses and hotel accommodations.

A key strength of the conference is its bringing together a diverse audience from across the state to focus on educational opportunity and student success: college access practitioners; high school leaders, counselors, and case managers; college and university leaders and administrators; employers and workforce development professionals; and policymakers and elected officials interested in higher education and career readiness. The conference also serves as an opportunity for stakeholders to improve their practice of collaboration and collective leadership as we work toward the state's goal.

The conference will take place at the Tinley Park Convention Center, Tinley Park, Illinois.

Please share this information with colleagues in your organization and other partners.

2019-20 Spring Term Claims & Benefit Usage
Sent to Financial Aid Directors, Financial Aid Administrators, Public Schools - Participating in the ING Grant and IVG Programs, and Business Officers on January 8, 2020.

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

GAP Access Available

Following a brief outage that allowed necessary system updates to be implemented, the ISAC Gift Assistance Programs (GAP) Access portal – which includes the electronic processing systems for the Minority Teachers of Illinois (MTI) Scholarship, Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois, Illinois National Guard (ING) Grant and Illinois Veteran Grant (IVG) programs – is again open and available for use.

Submit 2019-20 Claims/Benefit Usage Data for the Spring (Second) Term

Colleges are encouraged to submit second-term certifications and payment requests (claims) for the 2019-20 MTI Scholarship and Golden Apple programs, as well as second-term benefit usage data for the 2019-20 ING Grant and IVG programs, as soon as possible.

The following reminders are provided to assist colleges in the administration of these programs.

MTI Scholarship and Golden Apple

  • Submitting claims is a two-step process, which involves generating the request (either individually or in a batch) and then submitting the request.
  • Because the Golden Apple Foundation completes certification for Golden Apple recipients, any adjustment to a student's academic level during the award year that would impact a student's award amount must be reported to the Golden Apple Foundation so that they can update the student's certification record. Once the certification record has been updated, the college will be able to submit a claim for the updated award amount. The contact person at the Foundation is Cheryl Flores (flores@goldenapple.org).
  • MTI Scholarship and Golden Apple results for claims received will be available via each program's electronic processing system. After vouchers are generated, they are sent via e-mail to financial aid directors.
  • The disbursement of funds is processed by the State Comptroller's Office. Refer to the State Comptroller's Website page, located within the Processes section of the Financial Aid Administrators area, for information on how to track payment.
  • Because Payment Offset and Reconciliation procedures apply to the MTI Scholarship and Golden Apple programs, refund checks should not be sent for cancellations/adjustments made throughout the award year. Funds should only be returned to ISAC after a final reconciliation has been completed at the end of the regular school year.
  • Colleges submitting claims and cancellations/adjustments in a timely manner allows ISAC staff to monitor remaining funds and award other students, as applicable.
  • The MTI Scholarship and Golden Apple systems are available each day between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. (CT).
    • MTI Scholarship and Golden Apple claims submitted by 7 p.m. (CT) will be included in that night's processing, with payment results available the next business day.
    • Results for claims submitted after 7 p.m. (CT) will be included in the following night's processing.
  • More information regarding online certification (for the MTI Scholarship Program) and payment functionality (for both programs), including detailed instructions, is available at the following locations on ISAC's website:

ING Grant and IVG

  • Benefit usage data for the ING Grant and IVG programs is submitted to ISAC by colleges via the benefit usage functionality within each program's system, allowing colleges to report students' enrollment hours and benefit dollar amounts for initial, in-district and out-of-district requests.
  • Although ISAC is not able to reimburse institutions for 2019-20 ING Grant or IVG awards, reporting of benefits used must still take place so that usage can be accurately reflected on students' accounts.
  • The IVG and ING Grant systems are available each day between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. (CT).
  • 160-byte file layout specifications for the 2019-20 ING Grant and IVG programs, describing the file layout to be used to send data for each program via FTP, are available within the Electronic Tools section of the e-Library for Partners.
  • More information, including detailed instructions, is available at the following locations:

Watch for Future Updates

Future program updates – including announcement of submission deadlines for second-term claims and benefit usage data – will be shared with colleges via ISAC's standard methods of communication, including: the MTI Scholarship, Golden Apple, ING Grant and IVG "Program News" areas; the FAA Message Board; and, this e-Messaging service.


The Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid is Now Available
Sent to Financial Aid Directors, Financial Aid Administrators, MAP Users, and Business Officers on January 6, 2020.

To implement the Retention of Illinois Students and Equity (RISE) Act, signed into law by Governor Pritzker last June, the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid (Alternative Application) is now available through the ISAC website.

The Alternative Application is for state aid only, providing a pathway to apply for Monetary Award Program (MAP) grants for qualifying undocumented students and for transgender students who are not eligible for federal financial aid because they did not register for selective service.

Most students in Illinois will continue to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), rather than the Alternative Application, to simultaneously apply for federal, state and institutional aid, including MAP grants.

In order to receive a MAP grant, all students, whether completing the FAFSA or the Alternative Application, must still meet the eligibility criteria of the MAP program itself.

The current Alternative Application is for 2020-21 MAP grants. (Beginning next fall, the Alternative Application will be available concurrently with the FAFSA, on October 1 for the 2021-22 academic year.)

Undocumented and transgender students who have not completed a 2020-21 FAFSA and who want to determine their eligibility to complete the Alternative Application can review the information at www.isac.org/AlternativeApp. While the Alternative Application itself includes pre-screening questions to determine if a student is eligible to complete it, ISAC encourages students to also consult their school counselor or financial aid office in deciding whether they should complete the FAFSA or the Alternative Application.

In addition to information and FAQs on ISAC's website and a User Guide for the application itself, ISAC provides free assistance to students and families, in English or Spanish, to complete the FAFSA or the Alternative Application; students can contact their local ISACorps representative or contact ISAC's Call Center at 800.899.ISAC (4722).

ISAC continues to offer free training sessions about the Alternative Application for financial aid officers, school counselors, advocates and others who work directly with students. Watch for the announcement of upcoming webinars in a future e-Message.

Share ISAC's one-minute video about the RISE Act and the Alternative Application to help increase awareness of this option among students and families of undocumented and transgender students. Find it on our website and through YouTube. The video is available in English and Spanish.


GAP Access Available, and MAP Updates
Sent to Financial Aid Directors, Financial Aid Administrators, MAP Users, and Business Officers on January 6, 2020.

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

GAP Access Available

Effective immediately, the ISAC Gift Assistance Programs (GAP) Access portal – including the Monetary Award Program (MAP) system – is again open and available for use.

Submit Second Term MAP Claims by March 6

The ISAC staff continues to monitor fiscal year 2020 (FY20) appropriation levels and claim rates.

  • Consistent with last year's timeframe, the 2019-20 MAP second term priority claim deadline date is Friday, March 6, 2020.
  • All 2019-20 MAP grants for eligible students with initial Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) receipt dates on or after May 27, 2019, remain in suspense status.
  • Colleges will be notified if ongoing analysis warrants changes to the claim deadline or suspense dates.
  • Specific details regarding the payment process are provided in the MAP Payment area, as well as in the "Payment" chapter of the MAP User Guide.
    • NOTE: The MAP User Guide soon will be updated to reflect the elimination of the 75-hour cap. In the meantime, the existing version of the user guide accurately reflects the MAP payment process.

Reminder: Elimination of 75-Hour Cap

As a result of the Retention of Illinois Students and Equity (RISE) Act, the cap of 75 MAP Paid Credit Hours for freshman and sophomore students was eliminated effective January 1, 2020, and – starting with the spring 2020 term – all corresponding edits have been removed from the MAP system (edits for the fall 2019 and earlier terms will continue to display).

  • Because removal of the limit took effect in the middle of the 2019-20 academic year, some students who were not MAP-eligible in the fall 2019 term now may be eligible for spring-term awards.
  • A list of potentially impacted students can be obtained by creating a report within the MAP system by:
    • using the "Reports" tab and clicking on "Create a New Report",
    • selecting "MAP Paid Credit Hours" from the list of report types, and
    • entering a range of the number of MAP paid credit hours.
  • Student records previously designated as ineligible [V code (reached 75 MAP paid credit hours)] within the MAP system should be reviewed and, if applicable, submitted for spring-term payment.

Watch for Future Updates

Future MAP updates will be shared with colleges via ISAC's standard methods of communication, including the MAP Program News area, the FAA Message Board, and this e-Messaging service.
