Our Newest Enhancement Supplements Your SSCR Roster to Include Missing Students
On December 31, the National Student Clearinghouse implemented our newest enhancement, which automatically supplements your SSCRs by sending to NSLDS students who 1) previously appeared on a Clearinghouse roster and 2) are actively enrolled at either your or another school. No additional reporting by your school is required.
Our enhancement addresses the issue of students who should, but do not appear, on NSLDS SSCR rosters. In our first use of the enhancement, the Clearinghouse sent more than 2.4 million “missing” students to NSLDS. These are students who appeared on previous rosters processed by the Clearinghouse, but not on current SSCR rosters — despite these students being currently enrolled.
Our new SSCR enhancement is expected to help significantly decrease deferment requests.
You and your students should begin realizing the benefits of our new enhancement as NSLDS accepts and adds the missing student data back to your school’s SSCR rosters. We expect one of those benefits to be a significant decrease in deferment requests.
For more on why we created this enhancement, what federal regulations say, and an explanation of why students may be excluded from your roster, read our previous post.
