NSLDS Updated to Ease Unusual Enrollment History (UEH) Issues

Changes have been implemented in NSLDS to assist schools in their UEH determination and resolution efforts.

When determining UEH, NSLDS now considers whether a school has had a change of affiliation causing an OPEID to change.

In those cases, NSLDS will consider the multiple school codes as the “same” school despite having a different 8-digit OPEID for the UEH evaluation. Additionally, NSLDS now reviews undergraduate and graduate status independently over the previous four award years.

During this monitoring period, undergraduates will be assessed if they have received Pell Grants and/or loans from multiple schools. Graduate students will be evaluated if they have received loans from multiple schools. If a student is in both groups, the highest (worst) UEH value from either group will be pushed to the applicant’s ISIR.
