New for AY 2014 Student Financing Module • Student Financing Module • Now integrated into the AY Collection • Data will be made available to the Board and will be used for reporting purposes after certification period • No corrections/changes will be made after the certification period
New Warnings for AY 2014 Student Financing Module • Student Costs • Warning - No Students Reported as SB 155 • Students Financing File • Student is in Enrolled Flags (EF) and not Students Financing (FN) • Warning – “Would expect each student to have at least one FN record for each term enrolled unless they are 100% self-pay.”
New Fatal Error for AY 2014 Student Financing Module • Students Financing File • Student is in Students Financing (FN) and not Enrolled Flags (EF) • Fatal – “For each FN record, there must be an EF record. Reporting Periods must match.”
SFM Data Issues and Clarifications • SFM data collection covers the same timeframe as AY – Summer 2013, Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 • In the Student Costs file tuition charges should be reported before adjustments are made • Tuition should NOT include required fees • Required fees are reported separately in student costs file
SFM Data Issues and Clarifications • All records in Enrolled Flags (EF) must have a Student Costs record (SC) • All records in Students Financing (FN) must also have a record in Enrolled Flags (EF) • SSN and Student ID must match in all files or system will generate errors
SFM Data Issues and Clarifications • Students Cost File • Reported EFC Months cannot exceed 12 • Example: If a student is enrolled full-time in SU, FA, SP reported months would be 3.0, 4.5, 4.5 respectively. • Each Reporting Period must have a Primary Cost record • If a student has multiple tuition rates within a single reporting period suggested guidance is to report the largest number of credit hours as Primary and all others as Subsequent.
SFM Data Issues and Clarifications • Students Financing File • Only 1 record per student per reporting period enrolled per STAN (Funding Source/Funding Type/Award Type/Award Need) • If a student has more than one institutional scholarship with same STAN the system will error this out • These must be rolled-up into a single total per STAN per Student per Reporting Period
SFM Data Issues and Clarifications • Students Financing File • Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) • MSEP students are Waivers • 529 funds are an award • These should be treated like cash and not reported in the FN file
SFM Data Issues and Clarifications • Students Financing Warning • “Would expect each student at least one FN record for each term that student is enrolled.” • This will continue to be a warning • Students who pay out-of-pocket will not have an FN record • We want institutions to be aware of how many students they are reporting as self-pay to help ensure data is correct
SFM Data Issues and Clarifications • Basic Counts Report • It is very important that all parties involved in providing the SFM data review the Basic Counts report for accuracy. We will be reporting on the data provided to us in the AY 2014 collection. • Unlike this past year, we will not be allowing schools to go back and correct the SFM data once it has been certified.
SFM FAQs • Will I need to certify my SFM collection? • SFM is part of the AY collection and will be certified as part of AY. • What do I do if I don’t see a code (tuition type, tuition waiver, etc.) that fits what my institution does? • Contact IR Help at email@example.com . Provide as much information about the code as possible.
SFM FAQs • I don’t understand the difference between a primary cost record and a subsequent cost record? • Every student in Enrolled Flags must have a primary cost record for each term enrolled. • Some students will have subsequent cost records if they have multiple tuition types. • Which one you mark as primary or subsequent does not matter! • Other costs (ex. Room & board, book & supplies, etc.) are only included with the primary cost record. (These costs must be reported as zero on subsequent cost records for that student for that reporting term to avoid duplicating costs).
SFM FAQs • What do I do if a student and/or family pays for all education costs? • Record all periods in which the student is enrolled in the Students Costs file. Do not report anything in the Students Financing file. • What students should be submitted in the collection? • All students that are reported in the Enrolled Flags file should also be reported in the Students Costs file and probably the Students Financing file unless 100% self pay.
SFM FAQs • Why does KBOR need this information? • NCHEMS & SHEEO list Financing Module as one of 15 Essential Characteristics of data system • They conclude “…including financial aid data in a postsecondary longitudinal database is a wise investment.” • To answer questions such as… • Are we pricing students out of higher education? • Is there a correlation between aid received, debt incurred and retention? • As costs / aid availability change, how does composition of students change? • What does student debt look like?
