Using INAS Simulation


Concept


Steps:

  1. Begin by navigating to the Student Income/Assets page.

     

    Click the Financial Aid link.

    Step 1
  2. Click the Federal Application Data link.

    Step 2
  3. Click the Simulate 2006-2007 FM INAS link.

    Step 3
  4. Enter the desired information into the ID field. Enter

     a valid value
     e.g.
     "FA0601"
    .

    Step 4
  5. Click the Search button.

    Step 5
  6. After you make changes to income or other asset values, you can use the Student Income/Assets page to run the INAS Simulation process prior to INAS calculation. You can use any of the pages in the simulation component to use the INAS Simulation process.

    Step 6
  7. When you click the Get Federal Data button, the system retrieves the latest ISIR information and places it in the INAS Simulation tables.

     

    You can modify values on this page  that are reflected in the student's EFC.

     

    Click the Get Federal Data button.

    Step 7
  8. Click in the Student's Earnings field.

    Step 8
  9. Enter the desired information into the Student's Earnings field. Enter

     a valid value
     e.g.
     "9,000"
    .

    Step 9
  10. After you make your  changes, click the INAS button to carry out an INAS calculation and to display the results of the EFC.

     

    Click the INAS button.

    Step 10
  11. When you click the Use Simulated Data button, the system uses the calculated data for need analysis.

     

    Click the Use Simulated Data button.

    Step 11
  12. When you select Yes, the system inserts a new row in the ISIR tables and any field that you changed is processed.  A changed field is sent to the Audit Table for history, included in the ISIR correction process, and used to recalculate need.

     

    Click the Yes button.

    Step 12

You have successfully performed the steps to use the INAS Simulation process.
