The Workforce Development Grant Adjustment (WA) file contains a record for a student account at SGS that is to receive an adjustment to increase or decrease a term amount, whether it has been disbursed or scheduled to for an upcoming disbursement. The record identifies the student and the details of the Workforce Development Grant Adjustment (WA). The school must have already submitted a WD file for the student for the academic year.
Files may be submitted as often as necessary, although we recommend submitting no more than once per academic term.
The capture date for the Workforce Development Grant Adjustment (WA) file is no later than the end of the academic year.
Relationship to Other File Submissions
The file is independent of all other files. However, the data in this file represent transactions for records that must have been submitted in a previous Workforce Development Certification (WD) file.
Data Fields (in all records except the file header record)
|Field Names||Field Attributes and Procedures||Data Format|
|Student Identifier||Enter the federally assigned Social Security Number (SSN) whenever possible. If the SSN is unavailable, enter another identifier that uniquely relates to this student. For a given student, the same identifier must be used in all student related files.||Alphanumeric 9 characters
|Institution Assigned Identifier Switch||Enter Y if the student identifier was assigned by the institution and is not a federally assigned SSN. Enter N if the student identifier is the SSN assigned by the federal government.||Alphabetic
|Adjustment Amount||Enter to the nearest dollar (no decimals) the amount of the adjustment to the amount previously certified for the term indicated in the Adjustment Term below.||Numeric 4 characters Columns 11-14|
|Adjustment Type||Enter the type of adjustment that the Adjustment Amount represents. R = reduction in amount previously certified. (The Adjustment Amount is to be subtracted from the Award Amount from the WD certification file.) I = increase in amount previously certified. (The Adjustment Amount is to be added to the Award Amount from the WD certification file.)||Alphabetic 1 character Column 15|
|Adjustment Term||Enter a code from Term Codes indicating the term to which the Adjustment Amount is applied.||Alphabetic 2 characters Columns 16-17|
Adjustment Amount: Enter to the nearest dollar (no decimals) the amount by which the previously-certified amount is to be increased or decreased for the Adjustment Term. Do not include cents. For example, an adjustment of $64 must be reported as 0064.
Adjustment Type: An "R" will result in a refund to a previous disbursement or a decrease to an upcoming disbursement, by the amount of the adjustment. For example, the $64 adjustment with Adjustment Type = R, when applied to a $100 certification, will result in a net disbursement of $36 for the term. An "I" will result in an increase by the amount of the adjustment. For example, the $64 adjustment with Adjustment Type = I, when applied to a $100 certification, will result in a net disbursement of $164 for the term.
