Atlanta, GA

The Department of Education will release draft FY 2012 three-year federal cohort default rate (CDR) data on February 23. Institutions with high default rates are subject to significant additional requirements, and stand to lose eligibility for participation in federal student aid—a penalty that few institutions in the U.S. could realistically survive. An institution's cohort default rate is calculated as the percentage of borrowers in the cohort who default before the end of the second fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the borrower entered repayment. In an effort to get ahead of any upcoming actions and/or sanctions that may be taken to penalize an institution that does not meet the set standard enacted by congress in the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEA) of 2009, we hope that you will join us as we face this vital problem together.
