Home Institutions report their students enrolled in consortium courses as full or part-time students depending on their status at the Home Institution. Teaching Institutions do not report consortium students because these students’ courses are not transcribed on the Teaching Institution’s transcripts.
National Student Clearinghouse
Each institution determines whether to report non-degree seeking students. Some institutions find it easier to simply report everyone in their enrollment report, even if those students are not part of IPEDS reporting.Others omit non-degree seeking students since their status typically does not have an impact on their student loan repayment obligations.
