Education Credit Management Corp. webinar: Incorrect Data Challenge

This webinar is another opportunity for you to lower your FY 2012 three-year cohort default rate (CDR). The cohort tracking periods have closed and in February 2015, your school will receive its draft CDR from the U.S. Department of Education. You will be given 45 days to review this data for accuracy and submit an appeal to change any incorrect data. This appeal is referred to as an Incorrect Data Challenge (IDC). Please join ECMC for an informative webcast where they will walk you through the process of submitting a successful IDC appeal—possibly lowering your official FY 2012 CDR. The tools and advice they offer will help you quickly achieve maximum results.
