On Student Budget Maintenance for Aid Year 2024-2025, After Saving any Changes to a Budget or Clicking 'Update Need Summary', The Need Summary Page Shows Need is Incorrectly Inflated by the Value of the SAI, When the SAI is Negative (Doc ID 3005123.1)

Last updated on MARCH 19, 2024

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Financial Aid - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On the Student Budget Maintenance for page Aid Year 2024-2025, when making and saving any adjustments for a student with a Negative SAI, the Need figure shown in the Need Summary link is updated incorrectly - inflated by the value of the negative SAI. This issue will occur when:

When the SAI is negative, it's expected to be treated as 0 for need summary calculation purposes, so the need should always be calculated as equal to the Cost of Attendance (COA) in these cases.

This problem has (so far) not been noticed to occur when building a budget in batch or from the Create Student Budget page, or with the other Packaging processes that update the need summary.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Financial Aid > Budgets > Maintain Term Budgets > Student Budget Maintenance for a student in Aid Year 2025 with a negative SAI and no previous budget. 
  2. Add a new budget for at least one term, save the component, and click 'Need Summary' to note the calculated need is incorrect.
  3. Repeat step 1 except for a student with a previously existing budget record and where the Need Summary initially displays correctly.
  4. Make an adjustment(s) that will alter the budget amount and save OR simply click the 'Update Need Summary' button; then click 'Need Summary' to note the calculated need is incorrect.


 The issue occurs after applying the fixes for the 2024-2025 ISIR Update: FAFSA Simplification
