National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)

What is NSLDS?

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, and other U.S. Department of Education programs. NSLDS provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants that are tracked through their entire cycle; from aid approval through closure.

What information is available to me through the NSLDS Student Access web site?

You can use the web site to make inquiries about your Title IV loans and/or grants. The site displays information on loan and/or grant amounts, outstanding balances, loan statuses, and disbursements. The Glossary of Terms contains information on terms relating to loans and grants.

What information do I need to use the NSLDS Student Access web site?

In order to use the NSLDS Student Access web site, you will need to provide your Social Security number (SSN), the first two letters of your last name, your date of birth, and your FSA ID.

How secure is the NSLDS Student Access website?

The unique combination of SSN, FSA ID, and personal information needed to access the NSLDS Student Access web site makes it as secure as using an ATM.
