Reporting External Awards

This section provides an overview of reporting external awards and lists the pages used to report external awards.

The Reporting External Award component enables students to provide information regarding any external awards not already reflected on their award package. Self-service options control whether the component is accessible from the Accept/Decline and View Financial Aid pages and the Packaging Status Summary page. External awards reported by students are considered a data source to External Award staging tables. All student-reported awards are posted directly to External Award staging tables and automatically set with a processing status of Reported and data source of Self Serve. The system-set process status of Reported on external award transactions reported by the student require administrator review before any potential posting to the student award package.

Administrators use a Comment field to enter the status of self-service reported external awards. They also indicate whether comments should be viewable to a student. These comments are displayed on the Award Detail page, from awards listed on the Aid from Other Aid-Report History page.
