Subject: Updated Record Layouts for NSLDS Loan Record Detail Reports

The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) Loan Record Detail Report (LRDR) will be updated in January 2013. The updates described below will be made to the extract version of the reports. The length of the reports will not be affected by these updates.

A complete description of the enhancements to the Loan Record Detail Reports, both extract and pre-formatted versions, will be included in an upcoming NSLDS Newsletter posted to the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site.

The updates to the LRDR include the following changes:
  • The header record will be updated to remove the Title IV Program field.

  • The detail record will include a Current Guaranty Agency (GA)/Federal Servicer Code field. This GA/Federal Servicer Code will assist in identifying the GA or Federal Loan Servicer that holds the loan at time of calculation.

  • The detail record will be updated to remove the Program Type and Usage Two fields.

  • The trailer record will be updated to remove the FFEL Program Count (Numerator), FFEL Program Count (Denominator), Direct Program Count (Numerator), Direct Program Count (Denominator), FFEL Total Outstanding Principal Balance at Default, FFEL Total Outstanding Interest Balance at Default, FFEL Total Outstanding Principal Balance at Repayment, FFEL Total Outstanding Interest Balance at Repayment, Direct Total Outstanding Principal Balance at Default, Direct Total Outstanding Interest Balance at Default, and Direct Total Outstanding Principal Balance at Repayment fields.

  • The trailer record updates will also include the removal of ‘Dual’ from the title for the Dual Outstanding Principal Balance at Default, Dual Outstanding Interest Balance at Default, and Dual Total Outstanding Principal Balance at Repayment fields.

These updates are applicable to the following record layouts:

    • DRC015 – 24-Month School Repayment Information Loan Record Detail Report
    • DRC016 – 36-Month School Repayment Information Loan Record Detail Report
    • DRC035 – School Cohort Default Rate History Report
    • DRC040 – GA Cohort Default Rate History Report
    • DRC045 – Lender Cohort Default Rate History Report
