Fiscal Year 2001 Cohort Default Rate Calculations

NSLDS will calculate draft and official fiscal year (FY) 2001 cohort default rates according to the following schedule:

Draft FY 2001 rates:

Calculate-January 11, 2003
Release-February 17, 2003

Official FY 2001 rates:

Calculate-August 2, 2003
Release-September 15, 2003

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.

If you have any questions, please contact the NSLDS Customer Service Center at (800) 999-8219 or e-mail
