Campus Deletions (CD) scope

Version Details

Version: 4.0
First Year: 2016
Last Year:


The Campus Deletion (CD) file enables providers to delete campus records that have been previously reported on a Campus submission. These records may have been reported in error or the course may no longer be delivered from the reported campus location.

The Campus Deletion submission also supports the modification of the following data elements reported in the Campus submission. These elements uniquely identify a campus record and cannot be updated though the Campus submission.

To change these elements, the incorrect record must first be deleted in the Campus Deletion submission. A new updated record can then be reported in a new Campus submission for the reporting year.
