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 federal student aid loans and Pell grants that are tracked through their entire cycle, from aid approval through closure.
The NSLDS Student Access website is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Note: maintenance of the NSLDS database can occur on the weekends or late hours. This may cause the site to be unavailable for a brief period while the maintenance is performed.
All of the following information, and much more, can be accessed through the U.S. Department of Education's Federal Student Aid site:
