Enrollment Status Verification

2016-17

Enrollment Status Verification

Each year, colleges are required to verify the enrollment statuses for recipients in the program*s with teaching requirements and practice agreements. Verification of enrollment status is required for all recipients who, according to our records, previously received funds from the following ISAC-administered teacher education programs and may have been enrolled at your institution during the 2016-17 academic year.

Beginning November 1, 2017, TESP Enrollment Status Verification must be completed online via the My Zone portal and submitted to ISAC on or before November 30, 2017. Data should be reported based on each student's last date of enrollment in the required teaching program, regardless of whether that date falls within the 2016-17 academic year or the current 2017-18 academic year. If a student remains enrolled in the required teaching program for 2016-17, indicate such with the “In School” status; those students will continue to appear on future online rosters. Colleges must also complete the 2016-17 Tuition Waiver Conversion Form (TWCF) for each SETTW recipients listed on the SETTW Enrollment Status Verification online roster.

Only enrollment status verification rosters and the SETTW TWCF for 2016-17 recipients are available at My Zone (i.e., 2015-16 rosters have been removed). Enrollment status verification data is available to be updated only if the roster has not yet been submitted to ISAC. If enrollment status verification or TWCF data that has already been submitted (for the current or previous academic years) needs to be changed, contact the School Services Department.

Refer to the Program Requirements/Practice Agreement page within in the Gift Assistance area for each of the programs listed above for details about the teaching requirement, extensions, deferments and repayment. Refer to TESP Enrollment Status Verification at My Zone, for information about the online process and the TESP Enrollment Status Verification Quick Reference Guide for step-by-step instructions on completing and submitting a roster to ISAC.
