As of September 26, institutions are able to begin reporting the required gainful employment information to the Departmentís National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). A letter to College Presidents and Financial Aid Administrators was sent from the Office of Federal Student Aid on September 23 and is available on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) website: http://www.ifap.ed.gov/eannouncements/092311LtrtoPresGEReportingRequirements.html. For information and resources on gainful employment reporting, see the IFAP website Gainful Employment Information Page: http://www.ifap.ed.gov/GainfulEmploymentInfo/.
The annual Data Feedback Reports will be emailed to institutional Keyholders in mid-October. Coordinators will be sent an email with links to the reports for all of their institutions. To ensure that you are able to receive the report, please make sure you can receive email from DataFeedBack@kforcegov.com, by adding it to your address book. If you do not receive the email by October 19, please check your spam or junk folders. As a reminder, printed copies of the DFRs will be mailed to institution Chief Executives no later than October 31, 2011. For assistance with using the Data Feedback Reports, or the Executive Peer Tool (ExPT), please contact the IPEDS Data Tools Help Desk, at 1-866-558-0658, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
