Pop Quiz - How Do We Resolve Comment Code 359 for Unusual Enrollment History?


A school has seen an increase in students with the 359 comment code for unusual enrollment history (UEH). Do you know why we are seeing an increase and how do we resolve this comment code?


No, NASFAA does not know the reason for the increase in UEH comment code 359. The U.S. Department of Education (ED) was made aware of the issue and conducted a special NSLDS postscreening on Wednesday, November 23 to correct student records that were erroneously flagged for UEH. See Electronic Announcement, 11/23/22. If the school believes the student is truly a UEH issue, see GEN-15-05 for additional information on acceptable documentation and what to do if the student did not earn academic credit at the previous school or schools.
