All federal student loans obtained by a student or parent are reported to and tracked on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). NSLDS loan records are accessible to all authorized NSLDS users, including schools, student loan guaranty agencies, lenders, federal agencies, and other authorized users.
Alternative and private education loan information is not reported to NSLDS.
Student and parent loan borrowers may view their federal loan information on NSLDS. Borrowers access the system using their federal PIN. Students can also access prior federal grant information on NSLDS.
