Revised: July 1, 2016
|1.||Degree records may be interspersed throughout a student's transcript in the same way as Remark Segment records (P04) records.|
|2.||The presence of binary zeroes in data fields causes significant problems for several institutions in the receipt of student records. A transaction will be rejected if non-displayable characters are sent in the data unless found in Filler Reserved for Local Use. Please use some other appropriate character (e.g., SPACES) with which to initialize your records before sending them.|
|3.||Item 33, although not required, is a field which can be used in the translation of the FASTER format to the SPEEDE format. If your institution can supply this field, the SPEEDE transcript produced from the translation will be more complete. Also, when receiving a transcript from a SPEEDE institution, this field may supply you with information useful in admissions and placement.|
|4.||Special characters, tilde (~), caret (^), and grave accent (`), are used as delimiters in the translation of FASTER to SPEEDE/ExPRESS. They are reserved symbols and as such cannot be included in data sent through FASTER to a SPEEDE/ExPRESS institution.|
|5.||Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*) next to the field name.|
Record Size: 1020
This is the record type for the transaction. The value will always be "P07".
Social Security Number*
List the student's social security number.
|4-12||9||N||Social Security Number|
This is a standard six digit code used to designate the term associated with this remark, if any. If this remark is not associated with any term header, it may be used to place it in proper sequence on the transcript. A value of all zeroes will be valid if the Remarks record precedes the first Term Record; a value of all nines will be valid only if the record follows the final Course Record. The first four digits are for the year; the last two digits designate a month. For January 1987, a term designator of 198701 would be used.
NOTE: The values of 000000 and 999999 are invalid if the degree was awarded by the sending institution.
Term Tag Number*
This is a sequential number assigned to this remark. If this remark segment is to be associated with a term header, it will bear the same number as the term header. This number will be 0 unless this remark is associated with a term header that has a tag number other than 0.
This indicates the level of the degree or certificate awarded to the student by the sending institution.
Institution Code Qualifier*
This is the code that identifies the type of number sent in Institution Code.
This is the OPEID code (see Appendix B ) of the institution from which the credit was received. If the code of the institution does not exist or is not known, a default value of all zeros should be sent with a value of "ZZ" in Institution Code Qualifier, item 5a.
The first field on the OPEID file contains the institution number of eight bytes, the last two of which are the campus number. For this application, use bytes 1-6, right justified, zero filled.
This is the name and address of the institution from which the degree was received if no OPEID number is available. For example, "AUTONOMA UNIVERSITY, MEXICO".
NOTE: This field is required if the transcript is sent to a SPEEDE/ExPRESS institution and no valid Institution Code is sent.
This is the date the degree was awarded. Format: MMDDCCYY
NOTE: Zeroes are valid in month and/or day if the sending institution is a SPEEDE/ExPRESS institution or the degree is not awarded by the sender.
This is the appropriate code from the "Classification of Instructional Programs" or CIP code. For Community Colleges:
Vocational Programs use digits 3 through 8 of the 10-digit CIP Code
