Financial Aid Analysis-Ready (A/R) File

Jul 7, 2020 | Postsecondary Data Partnership

We are very excited to announce the release of the Financial Aid Analysis-Ready (A/R) file for the Postsecondary Data Partnership (PDP). 

The Financial Aid Analysis-Ready file enables you to view calculated outcomes, such as unmet need and net price, in addition to a set of financial aid data elements from your submission file. Institutions that submitted at least one financial aid data file to the Clearinghouse will receive their first analysis-ready file starting Monday, July 6.    

The Financial Aid Analysis-Ready file will be available for download via the Clearinghouse’s secure FTP site. The details on how to download the A/R file will be sent directly to those schools that have submitted financial ad data to the Clearinghouse.

This release is another progressive step toward providing you, the higher education professional, access to better data and actionable insights through the PDP, which will enable you to make more informed decisions and better support student success. 

The PDP team is continuing to work hard to meet the expectations of our institutions. We have many exciting new PDP features planned for launch in 2020. Stay tuned!
