Subject: New NSLDS Median Borrowing Backup Detail Report

The record layout for the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) Median Borrowing Backup Detail Report is now available on the NSLDS Record Layouts page on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site.

The Median Borrowing Backup Detail Report provides schools with data that was included in the calculation of their Median Borrowing, as reported as part of the College Scorecard metrics. The new report provides schools with student and loan information used in the calculation.

The Median Borrowing Backup Detail Report is available to schools upon request under the Report Tab on the NSLDS Professional Access Web site. The standard fixed-width extract file is delivered via the Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) under message class SCMBDROP and is sent to the SAIG mailbox (TG number) of the user that requested the report.
