Does your institution have a non-compulsory academic term, like a summer non-required term? If so, now is a good time to read the reminders in our summer reporting blog post, clarifying compliance reporting expectations for non-compulsory term enrollment reporting. In it, you will find critical non-compulsory term enrollment reporting reminders and instructions on how to properly report enrollment for non-compulsory terms to Clearinghouse. This information will help your institution maintain federal reporting compliance.

IMPORTANT! Per the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), institutions must report non-compulsory terms, including summer, to meet student aid compliance requirements. For more, see Section 4.4.5 of the November 2019 NSLDS Enrollment Reporting Guide.

You’ll find more information and recommendations from the Clearinghouse in our How to Report Enrollment for Summer & Other Non-Compulsory Terms resource and our Compliance Reporting: Summer Enrollment Reporting Non-Compulsory Term Reporting recorded webinar.
