Fiscal Year 2000 Cohort Default Rate Calculations

NSLDS will calculate draft and official fiscal year (FY) 2000 cohort default rates according to the following schedule:

Draft FY 2000 rates:
Calculate-January 12, 2002
Release-February 11, 2002

Official FY 2000 rates:
Calculate-August 3, 2002
Release-September 9, 2002

Please provide NSLDS with all changes that may affect these rates prior to these dates. Required updates to borrower records must be a part of your agency's regular monthly submittal. NSLDS will not be able to accommodate special guaranty agency (GA) submissions. Therefore, all cohort default rate corrections must be a part of your scheduled December or January submission for the draft rates, and July or August submission for official rates.
