The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is a centralized database, available at www.nslds.ed.gov, which stores information on federal student aid such as grants and federal loans. NSLDS contains information on how much aid you’ve received, your enrollment status, and your loan servicer(s). You can access NSLDS using your Federal Student Aid PIN.

NSLDS receives data from schools, guaranty agencies, the Direct Loan Program, and other federal student aid programs.
