With the adoption of Proposal No. 2019-119, with a modified effective date of August 1, 2020, there may be changes in ARMS for the aid awards your institution makes for the 2020 academic year and all years moving forward.

All Merit Based awards that will no longer be countable against the SA or Team equivalencies will need to be denoted via their Fund Code in ARMS as "Non-Countable" aid.

If you already have these merit based fund codes in ARMS, but currently have them coded as Countable Institutional Aid, let us know and we can flip those codes to Non-Countable Institutional Aid moving forward.

If your institution decides to create new merit based aid awards, simply send us these new fund codes and we'll create them as Non-Countable Institutional Aid.
