On the ESSA master list of account codes, there are several codes that are highlighted. Can we use those account codes?

Yes – you can use the codes that are highlighted.

When a new account code is added to the ESSA Master List, it is highlighted on the “All Funds” tab to indicate that it is a new or revised code since the last version of the ESSA Master List was posted.  The other tab entitled “Changes” lists all of revised, new or deleted account codes along with a date when the change was made.
