Update Incoming Aggregate Aid

Purpose:  Update incoming aggregate aid using ctcLink.

Audience:  Financial Aid staff.

Use the Aggregate Aid Data page to ensure that a student does not exceed annual and lifetime limits for certain award programs.

This page displays the student's aggregate data and also allows you to enter external aid received and update lifetime total amounts for each aggregate area, cumulated by aid year.

The page is updated by internal awarding and packaging processes as well as your manual entries. Be sure to enter all external aid for the corresponding aid year to ensure that proper annual limits are evaluated during the awarding and packaging process. This is especially important for a student who is a mid-year transfer student and has received aid from another institution. All current year aid must be assessed to determine eligibility of remaining annual level limits. This is required regardless of how Aggregate Source is set for the student. This page also displays the corresponding NSLDS aggregate total for possible use during the awarding and packaging process.
