ED Announces Fall Reporting Schedule

August 14, 2003

The Department of Education requires all institutions participating in the Title IV federal student assistance programs to file eight separate reports electronically as part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) during the academic year, as well as separate campus crime reports and data on athletics, as required by the Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act (EADA). Noncompliance with these reporting requirements can result in significant fines.

ED's Fall 2003 data collection schedule is as follows:

Campus crime statistics Data collection begins August 18
Deadline for completion mid-October
IPEDS Collection opens September 10
Deadline for completion October 22
EADA statistics Data collection begins September 15
Deadline for completion October 30

ED is sending letters to institutions with specific instructions on completing the crime and athletics reports. Reminder: A campus version of "Megan's Law" took effect last fall, adding another disclosure requirement to the list of the annual security reports that colleges and universities are required to distribute by October 1. For more information, see NACUBO’s Advisory Report 2002-02 "Campus Crime Reporting: A Guide to Clery Act Compliance", NACUBO's November 7, 2002, bulletin "New Disclosures About Registered Sex Offenders Kick In”", and the ED’s campus security Web site http://ope.ed.gov/security/index.asp.
