NSLDS Newsletters 56 and 57 have been added
Enrollment Reporting is required for all schools participating in Title IV aid. The collection of enrollment data is essential to the Department. It protects the rights of borrowers by ensuring that loan interest subsidies are based on accurate enrollment data. It ensures loan repayment dates are accurately based on a student’s last date of attendance. It allows in-school deferments to be automatically granted to students using NSLDS enrollment data. It provides vast amounts of critical data about the effectiveness of Title IV aid programs, including completion data.
The November 2017 updates to the guide include much-needed clarification on how to report Visiting, Transient, or Consortium Students. The guide also includes a new section regarding Effective Dates, Certification Dates and Received Dates with guidance, including clarification of how retroactive status reporting does not violate the “60 Day” enrollment reporting regulation and updated guidance on Timely Reporting requirements and even a few situational examples.
