*Eligibility status:

A school subject to loss of eligibility to participate in the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program, William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program, and/or Federal Pell Grant Program has FY 2011, FY 2010, and FY 2009 2-Year official cohort default rates that are 25.0% or greater. If a school fails to successfully appeal this sanction, it will lose eligibility to participate in the FFEL, Direct Loan, and/or Federal Pell Grant Program until September 30, 2014. For more information on this sanction and specific exceptions, please refer to the Cohort Default Rate Guide.

A school is subject to loss of eligibility to participate in the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program and/or William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program if the school's FY 2011 2-Year official cohort default rate is greater than 40.0%. If a school fails to successfully appeal this sanction, it will lose eligibility to participate in the FFEL and/or Direct Loan Program until September 30, 2015. For more information on this sanction and specific exceptions, please refer to the Cohort Default Rate Guide.

A school does not automatically appear on the loss of eligibility list based on the rates shown in this record because some schools are exempt from sanctions. A school may be simultaneously subject to the sanction based on three years and the sanction based on a single year of higher rates. During the official cohort default rate process, schools are provided the opportunity to adjust/appeal their cohort default rate(s) with the Department. The rates contained at this website do not reflect the outcome of the official cohort default rate adjustment/appeal processes. Please contact the Department's Default Prevention and Management Division to obtain information on a school's rate and/or eligibility status that may have changed as a result of an official cohort default rate adjustment/appeal.
