Subject: New Release Dates for FY 2011 2-Year and FY 2010 3-Year Draft Cohort Default Rates

In February 2013, we postponed the release of the draft cohort default rates to all eligible schools, guaranty agencies, and lenders.  The release dates have been rescheduled and we plan to release 2-year and 3-year draft cohort default rates as follows:

  • On March 18, 2013 we plan to release the FY 2011 2-year draft cohort default rates

  • On March 25, 2013 we plan to release the FY 2010 3-year draft cohort default rates

After we release the draft rates, we will post an Electronic Announcement on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site.

All schools, both domestic and foreign, enrolled in the Electronic Cohort Default Rate (eCDR) Process will receive their FY 2011 2-year and FY 2010 3-year draft cohort default rates and accompanying documentation via their Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) mailbox. Any school not enrolled in the eCDR process may download their cohort default rate and accompanying documentation from the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) via the NSLDS Professional Access Web site. The draft cohort default rate is found on the last page of the Loan Record Detail Report (LRDR).

Note: We encourage any school not already signed up for the eCDR process to do so by completing the enrollment form on the SAIG Enrollment Web site.

Guaranty agency rates will be provided electronically and lender rates will be available for download from the NSLDS.
