Match Flags


These flags indicate the results of various matches conducted by the CPS with other agencies. These results can determine whether or not a student receives federal aid. These flags can also help you determine what a particular “C” code or reject is for.

A more detailed explanation of the meanings of the various match flags, their accompanying comment codes, and what resolutions, if any, are needed, is located in the ISIR Guide for the appropriate award year.
