FFELP Overview
  • CommonLine
    • CommonLine standardizes electronic loan certification formats, response files, disbursements, change transactions, and error messages.
    • The goal of CommonLine is to simplify the loan origination, disbursement, and change process for schools by:
      • Establishing common formats used by all participants.
      • Allowing schools to use just one school-based software system to communicate with all CommonLine participants.
      • Allowing schools to use their current software systems to communicate with organizations with which they currently have no electronic connection.
ffelp overview6
FFELP Overview
  • How Does Your School Flow?
    • Guarantor Flow
      • School sends data to guarantor, guarantor sends to lender
    • Lender Flow
      • School sends data to lender, lender forwards data to guarantor
    • Borrower Initiated Flow
      • Student applies through the lender and initiates sequence. School then certifies loans after receipt of cert request sent by lender
  • The Guarantee Agency is essentially an

insurance agency for the federal loan.

ffelp overview7
FFELP Overview

Many guarantors and lenders work together to handle pieces of the loan originations process.

  • HESC Schools
    • HESC collects MPN / Cert, pulls credit for PLUS Credit Check participants, guarantees loan, then sends file to lender setting loan for disbursement.
  • EdFund Slate Process
    • Similar to above for schools who choose to participate
    • Schools determine which flow works best for them and their students
ffelp overview8
FFELP Overview
  • 3rd Party Flows
  • Loans originated outside of the lenders system
    • Lender pays the 3rd party to originate on their behalf collecting the MPN, Cert, Guarantee, and performing disbursement activities
    • Examples:
      • American Education Services
      • American Student Assistance
      • Great Lakes

FFELP Origination
  • Certification
    • The act of attesting that something is true or meets a certain standard. For example, the school certifies the borrower’s eligibility for a loan and, if applicable, interest benefits. The borrower completes an application, promissory note, or deferment form, thereby certifying that certain eligibility criteria have been met.
    • CommonLine (lender sites, open platforms,etc), paper or phone

Loan Guarantee

  • A conditional legal obligation, as defined in an agreement by and between a guarantor and a lender, for the guarantor to reimburse the lender for some portion of a loan that is not repaid by the borrower due to default, death, disability, bankruptcy, borrower ineligibility, false certification of borrower eligibility, or school closure.
  • Guarantee is transmitted via CommonLine

to the school and the lender
