“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.”
You must have a FSA ID to access NSLDS. If you do not have a FSA ID please access the U.S. Department of Education "Create a NEW FSA ID" web site and follow the instructions on the screen. You'll have a FSA ID in just a few minutes.
