7.4 ETPL Eligibility | 7.4.5 Wisconsin's Continued Eligibility Procedure



7.4.5 Wisconsin's Continued Eligibility Procedure

Effective date: September 2, 2019

Revised date: January 9, 2020

Revised date: March 16, 2022

DWD-DET will perform its continued eligibility procedure for all institutions and their programs between July 1 and August 31 each year, regardless of when the institution's program eligibility began. Institutions and their programs that pass continued eligibility requirements maintain their listing on Wisconsin's ETPL website. Wisconsin's continued eligibility procedure consists of the following steps:

  1. DWD-DET verifies that the institution still meets DWD-DET's Institution Minimum Requirements;
  2. DWD-DET verifies that the institution still meets at least one of DWD-DET's standard eligibility criteria or, if the institution is classified as an Alternate, the program meets DWD-DET's alternate eligibility criteria;
    AND
  3. The institution uses the ETPL Provider Portal to submit a file in the required format that contains individual-level information for all students who were enrolled in the training program for the most recently completed program year (i.e., July 1 through June 30). See 7.7 ETPL Performance Reports.

    Note: Institutions that are part of Wisconsin's Technical College System (WTCS) are not required to submit the individual-level information for all students if the training program is recognized by the WTCS Office (i.e., the WTCS Office has assigned the program a unique identification number). The WTCS Office submits the required performance information for these programs to DWD-DET directly by September 7 of each year. Institution staff must, however, submit the individual-level information for any program not recognized by the WTCS Office (also referred to as a "local program").
