Effective: August 1, 2015
Financial Aid Transient Students
On July 1, 2012, a new function was added to the FASTER/SPEEDE postsecondary transcript application process. In addition to the existing Academic History Transcript, a “Cost of Attendance” record and an “Enrollment” record were introduced. Postsecondary FASTER formats are used to transmit these new records. This change gives the financial aid offices of the Florida State College System and the Florida State University System hosting institutions the ability to transmit financial aid Cost of Attendance information for transient students back to their home institutions. The purpose of transmitting this data is to meet federal requirements for the disbursement of financial aid to these students. This will be helpful for substantially improving the current, cumbersome, paper based process, and for complying with recent legislative directives relative to providing financial aid for transient students. This information will be transmitted between the financial aid offices of Florida public postsecondary institutions only.
Finalized documents which describe the FASTER component of the new Financial Aid Transient Student process are available for you to view. After you read the FASTER instructions and attachments, please contact the FASTER staff FSTR@fldoe.org with any questions, comments or concerns about the changes that were made. SPEEDE instructions are also available which outline the requirements for our postsecondary SPEEDE customers.
