Official Cohort Default Rates & Related Information

Each year, the Department calculates official cohort default rates for postsecondary institutions and lenders and guarantors participating in the FSA programs. For more information about how these default rates are calculated, see our Default Rate Materials on IFAP, including cohort default guides (PDF format). Note that the default rates shown on these Web sites were the ones current at the time of the annual announcement of the rates. In some cases, rates may change due to an appeal--see the PEPS Data system (below) for the most recent rates.
