FY 1999 COHORT DEFAULT RATE GUIDE AVAILABLE
The Cohort Default Rate Guide is now available on IFAP at http://ifap.ed.gov/drmaterials/finalcdrg.html. This Guide contains the FY 1999 cohort default rates associated with FFEL and direct loan programs. The Guide has a newly designed cover and internal presentation. It combines material, that was published semiannually in the former Draft and Official cohort default rate guides, into a single resource. This version of the Guide is considered the permanent release and any change made to its content by Default Management will be described only on the "change pages" area of the web site.
For More Information, contact Patricia Trubia, Director, Default Management, by phone at (202) 205-2506 or by e-mail at Patricia.Trubia@ed.gov.
