Subject: Enhancements to MyStudentData Download on NSLDS

We are pleased to announce that on June 30, 2014, "MyStudentData Download" functionality will be enhanced on the NSLDS Student Access Web site. MyStudentData Download allows students to download their loan, grant, enrollment, overpayment, and program enrollment information from the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) into a machine-readable, plain text file.

In an ongoing effort to provide students with their most current and helpful data, the downloadable file will be updated to include the following:

  • Student contact information

  • 150% Direct Subsidized Loan Limit (SULA) information

  • Additions to the list of valid loan type values

  • Loan subsidy information

  • Program enrollment information

  • Appendix A with sample output

We have posted an updated NSLDS MyStudentData Download file layout to the NSLDS Record Layouts page on the IFAP Web site. This document defines the layout of the file that students will be able to download from NSLDS Student Access and assists software vendors with designing new tools for students to maximize the usefulness of the data.
