Important Information on Data Submissions

Our goal is to provide dashboards within 30 days of the effective date or certification date (if data is submitted after the effective date). However, our report processing could be delayed during peak times.

Additional data quality checks performed after the degree and enrollment data matching process can reveal data discrepancies that may require you to re-submit data to ensure the best quality outcomes. If your institution is required to re-submit data, your dashboards will be available within 30 days from the latest certification date.

The optional Financial Aid file is not part of the certification process. If you plan to submit a Financial Aid file, please notify us by emailing PDPService@studentclearinghouse.org.

If you are experiencing issues with your service, you can check on the availability of our online system on the Service Availability Status page.
