National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) Quick Access
The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is the U.S. Department of Education's central database for student aid. It receives data from schools, agencies that guaranty loans, the Direct Loan program, the Pell Grant program, and other U.S. Department of Education programs. NSLDS provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and Pell grants that are tracked through their entire cycle; from aid approval through closure.
This section provides Guaranty Agencies, Lender/Lender Servicers, and State Grant Agencies with the requirements, acceptable uses, and restrictions for National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) online access. Included in this section are the instructions and the associated documents that must be submitted in order for an organization to be evaluated for approval to gain NSLDS online access.
