ENROLLMENT: To provide context for the Cohort Default Rate (CDR) data we include enrollment data (students enrolled at any time during the year) and a corresponding percentage (borrowers entering repayment divided by that enrollment figure). While there is no direct relationship between the timing of when a borrower entered repayment (October 1 through September 30) and any particular enrollment year, for the purpose of these data, we have chosen to use the academic year ending on the June 30 prior to the beginning of the cohort year (e.g., FY 2019 CDR Year will use 2017-2018 enrollment).

Cohort Detail Rate (CDR) datae is not displayed when Number of Borrowers in Repayment (number of borrowers entering repayment in cohort) includes 10 or fewer borrowers.
