Latest from FSA: Summer Term Enrollment Reporting to NSLDS

April 26, 2017

FSA recently provided guidance regarding how schools should report enrollment to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) during the summer for students enrolled in the preceding spring term and expected to enroll for the upcoming fall term.

In summation, students are considered to be continuously enrolled at least half time during the summer as long as:

  • There is no reason for the school to believe that the student will not enroll at least half time for the fall term
  • The student was enrolled at least half time at the end of the spring term

FSA’s announcement also includes the following table, which provides examples of how schools should report students for the summer term based on the student’s enrollment in the preceding spring term.

If the student is enrolled at the end of the spring term – And during the summer term is – The school should report during the summer –
Full time Not enrolled Full time
Full time Full time Full time
Full time Half time Half time (with an effective date of the beginning of the summer)
Full time Less than half time Full time
Half time Not enrolled Half time
Half time Full time Full time (with an effective date of the beginning of the summer)
Half time Half time Half time
Half time Less than half time Half time
Less than half time Not enrolled Less than half time
Less than half time Full time Full time (with an effective date of the beginning of the summer)
Less than half time Half time Half time (with an effective date of the beginning of the summer)
