Government Shutdown May Impact Some FAFSA Database Matches – NASFAA

While the Department of Education (ED) is fully funded for the 2019 fiscal year (FY)—award year (AY) 2019-20—the partial government shutdown may still cause issues for the processing of AY 2018-19 and 2019-20 FAFSAs that require certain database matches.

Institutions have reported to NASFAA receiving Comment Code 390, denoting “one or more federal agency matches were not performed” on some processed Institutional Student Information Records (ISIR) on or after December 22 for both the 2018-19 and 2019-20 AY for applicants who would be subject to a Selective Service Match. While it was initially unclear whether this issue is isolated to applicants attempting to register for Selective Service through the FAFSA, feedback indicates that the issue is also impacting applicants who are already registered. Applicants who already had a successful match on a prior transaction do not appear to be affected by this issue.
