Thousands of students earn Passports

During the 2017-2018 academic year, Network members officially reported to the National Student Clearinghouse that 12,975 students were awarded Passports. Deadlines for reporting Passport Completion and Academic Progress Tracking files for the 2018-2019 year are fast approaching. The Passport Completion file should be submitted by June 15th, 2019, and the Academic Progress Tracking file needs to be submitted by August 15th, 2019. Submitting the Academic Progress Tracking file by August 15th ensures that the data will be included in the Interstate Passport Annual Report. The Interstate Passport website and the National Student Clearinghouse have several resources available to assist in submission.

  • Submission file guides for each of the three files can be found here.
  • Webinars for using Banner, Colleague, and PeopleSoft to collect and submit Passport Student Data can be found here.
  • For other questions on data reporting, contact Kate Springsteen at
