On October 29, 2021, Federal Student Aid (FSA) released its new NSLDS Enrollment Reporting Guide (PDF) and NSLDS Guide Appendices (PDF).

Primarily, the guide updates refer to changes to SULA (Subsidized Usage Limit Applies), R2T4 (Return of Title IV funds) exceptions for programs offered in modules, NSLDS Enrollment Reporting Statistics Score incorporating a dedicated score for CIP Year 2020 (see our post, The 1st Release of the Clearinghouse’s CIP 2020 Phase III Enhancement Is Here!), and Ad Hoc Reporting, also see:

For a full list of the changes, make sure you read “What’s New?” on page ii of the guide and page one of the appendices.
