Subject: TEACH Grant Reporting - 2012-2013 Award Year
The Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) is requesting institutions that made awards to students under the TEACH Grant Program during the 2012-2013 award year to report certain student level data in support of the Department’s requirement to submit an annual progress report to Congress, as mandated by section 420P of the Higher Education Act.
Most of the information needed for the progress report is available from the Department’s Central Processing System (CPS) and Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System. However there are two information items that must be provided by TEACH Grant participating institutions: the Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) Code for the program in which the student was enrolled when the TEACH Grant was received and the student’s Cost of Attendance (COA) for the period when the TEACH Grant was received in the 2012-2013 award year.
To facilitate the institutional reporting process we have developed an online data collection tool that institutions will use to submit the required information for their 2012-2013 recipients of TEACH Grant Program awards.
Once implemented, the tool will provide each institution with the following information for each of its 2012-2013 TEACH Grant recipients as reported by the institution to COD:
Student’s First and Last Name
Student’s Date of Birth
Student’s Total TEACH Grant award amount
During the first week of November we will provide TEACH Grant participating institutions with instructions on how to log in to the data collection site as well as how to provide the required information and how to submit the completed report. Institutions will have 60 days to provide the requested data.
