Spring and Summer 2021 Data Submission
When Should Data Be Submitted?
- Current Participants: Participants who previously submitted course and cohort files for the fall 2020 term can begin submitting data for the spring and summer terms starting September 7, 2021.
- New Participants: New participating institutions that have not yet completed a historical data submission should continue doing so and include the spring and summer 2021 terms data.
There are four effective dates per academic year during which the Clearinghouse updates enrollment and degree data on the relevant dashboards. As a reminder, the effective dates are “snapshots” of the postsecondary enrollment and degree data against which your certified data submissions are used for calculating and generating the dashboards.
The four effective dates are:
- September 24, 2021
- November 12, 2021
- March 11, 2022
- June 17, 2022
When Will Analysis-Ready Files and Dashboards Be Available?
- Institutions that certify their PDP submission before the September 24, 2021, effective date will receive updated analysis-ready files and dashboards within 30 days of the September effective date
- Institutions that certify their PDP submission before the November 12, 2021, effective date will receive updated analysis-ready files and dashboards within 30 days of the November effective date
If you miss an effective date, don’t worry! You can still submit your data. Once you do, you will receive updated analysis-ready files and dashboards within 30 days after you certify your PDP data submission.
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 may 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
