Historical Record

Dear Colleague:

The Department of Education (ED) recently implemented the National
Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), the first national database of
loan-level data on the Title IV aid programs. Data in NSLDS will be
provided by guaranty agencies, schools, other ED computer systems,
and, indirectly, by lenders. This letter presents an overview of
NSLDS by addressing the following questions:

Executive Summary
Why implement NSLDS?
What will NSLDS do?
How will NSLDS benefit the Title IV community?
Who must provide data to NSLDS?
Who can use the NSLDS?
Who can I call if I have questions?
What is the next step?

We are excited about NSLDS and look forward to working with you
on this important project.

Sincerely,



Leo Kornfeld
Senior Advisor
to the Secretary
