visual representation of these various groups.

Image description. SFA Overview End of image description.

Aid Received

Throughout the instructions, the word “received” refers to financial aid that was awarded to, and accepted by, a
student. This amount may differ from the aid amount that is disbursed to a student.
Interactive Edits and Error Messages
The SFA component contains interactive edits that will check for blank fields, invalid values, or values that fall
outside expected ranges. Some error messages will require you to confirm or explain the values that you entered.
Some error messages are fatal and will require you to contact the IPEDS Help Desk for resolution.
Context Boxes
You will find optional text boxes throughout the SFA component. Context boxes allow you to provide more
information about the data you enter. Note that some of these context boxes will be made available to the public
on College Navigator, so make sure that the information you enter can be understood easily by students, parents,
and the general public.

Part C - Enter Financial Aid About Group 2, Page 2
Group 2 students are all full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students enrolled in Fall 2009.
For this part, report:

Unduplicated student counts within a given aid category (e.g., Pell grants). However, a student can
appear in more than one aid category.

Only grant or scholarship aid received by Group 2 students from the federal government, state/local
government, and from your institution. Do not include grant or scholarship aid from private or other
sources (e.g., Rotary Club Scholarship).

Loans to Group 2 students from the federal government and from other sources (including private
loans). Do not include PLUS loans (which are made to the parent of the student).

Financial aid received by Group 2 students at any time during the full aid year (academic year 2009
-10).
Note: Two aid categories in this section are further disaggregated into subcategories. Because students may receive more
than one type of aid, the sum of the values you enter in the subcategories will not necessarily equal the value you enter in
the aid category. However, the total number of students reported for the aid category cannot exceed the sum of
subcategories. (For example, the number of students receiving federal grants cannot exceed the sum of the number of
students receiving Pell grants and the number receiving other federal grants). In addition, the total number of students
reported for an aid category must be at least as large as the largest of those reported in a subcategory.

Summary
IPEDS Student Financial Aid (SFA) Survey Summary
IPEDS collects important information regarding your institution. All data reported in IPEDS
survey components become available in the IPEDS Data Center and appear as aggregated data
in various Department of Education reports. Additionally, some of the reported data appears
specifically for your institution through the College Navigator website and is included in your
institution’s Data Feedback Report (DFR). The purpose of this summary is to provide you an
opportunity to view some of the data that, when accepted through the IPEDS quality control
process, will appear on the College Navigator website and/or your DFR. College Navigator is
updated approximately three months after the data collection period closes and Data Feedback
Reports will be available through the ExPT and sent to your institution’s CEO in November 2011.
Please review your data for accuracy. If you have questions about the data displayed below
