Using Certification Dates for Enrollment File Reporting
When submitting enrollment reports to the Clearinghouse, should the certification date change each time?
The certification date is the date your school certifies its Enrollment Reporting file. This data field should change with each file submission to the Clearinghouse.
Can the census date be used for the certification date instead?
We do not recommend that you use the census date as the certification date on your enrollment file submissions. The preferred method is to use the creation or extraction date of when the file is pulled from your student information system.
