Hi William. Here is the note that displays above H4:

---------------  

Note: These are the graduates and loan types to include and exclude in order to fill out CDS H4 and H5.
Include:
* 2018 undergraduate class: all students who started at your institution as first-time students
and received a bachelor's degree between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.
* only loans made to students who borrowed while enrolled at your institution.
* co-signed loans.
Exclude:
* students who transferred in.
* money borrowed at other institutions.
* parent loans
* students who did not graduate or who graduated with another degree or certificate (but no bachelor’s degree.


---------------

Use the row count and not H4 for the denominator. The Average column is described as "Average per undergraduate borrower ... borrowed from the types of loans specified...", not the average for borrowers and non-borrowers. 

Regards,

Good morning,

I have two questions regarding Section H5:

1. Are Parent Loans/Federal PLUS Loans supposed to be included in the cumulative principal borrowed for H5 a) or b)?

2. Is the denominator for the “Average per-undergraduate-borrower cumulative principal borrowed” column the student count listed in H4, or the student count listed in each row (a,b,c,d,e)?

Thank you
