Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed whether information on students with direct loans leaving a certain medical college was being reported to the Department of Education's Ford Direct Loan Program Servicing Center, focusing on: (1) the extent to which borrowers' school enrollment dates differ from the dates recorded by the Department's servicer; and (2) whether the problem lies in the school's transmission to the servicer, the servicer's method of updating its records, or elsewhere.

GAO found that: (1) borrowers' enrollment dates at the medical college differed from the dates recorded at the Servicing Center; (2) the dates differed because the medical college did not promptly update the Servicing Center's records; and (3) Department of Education officials said that they do not plan to penalize the medical college for failing to report the borrowers' enrollment dates.
