   This element should reflect the most recent admission date to the            
   institution.  It should be updated each time the student proceeds            
   through the admission process, (I.E. An unclassified student who             
   is formally admitted to the institution; or a native student who             
   is admitted to a graduate program.)                                          
   On the Hours to Degree File, this element will be program                    
   generated using the Student Data Course File.
