TransferTrack: A New Service To Provide Post-Secondary Educational Institutions with Subsequent Enrollment Information on Students Who Transfer Out to Other Schools.
National Student Loan Clearinghouse, Herndon, VA.
A new service, TransferTrack, was developed by the National Student Loan Clearinghouse, that will enable postsecondary educational institutions to identify which of their former students have subsequently re-enrolled at other institutions and the identity of such institutions. This system will allow institutions to comply more easily with the Student Right To Know and Campus Security Act of 1990, which requires schools to publish the rate at which cohorts of full-time, first-time, degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students graduate, and a separate rate at which these students transfer to other institutions. The paper explains the eligibility requirements for participation in TransferTrack, the limitations on students for whom data may be provided, the TransferTrack operational process, the cost of the service, and the procedure for initiating the service. Appendixes provides the TransferTrack request file data element layout and the TransferTrack agreement. (MDM)
