Your SSCR Errors Action Guide
First, it’s important for you to know that NSLDS made a major change to the SSCR Error process in late 2016. According to the NSLDS Enrollment Reporting Guide, published in November 2016, schools are now required to correct errors on their SSCR Error Report within 10 business days vs. respond to the report within 10 days. The latest NSLDS Enrollment Reporting Guide, published in November of 2017, also requires the correction of SSCR errors within 10 days. You can read more about compliance reporting requirements on our blog.
Here are some steps you can take to help you better understand and resolve SSCR errors.
