Subject: Enhancements to NSLDS MyStudentData Download Functionality

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

The downloadable file will be updated on December 23, 2018 to include both adding and revising data fields to reflect changes in NSLDS. To assist software vendors with designing tools for students to maximize the usefulness of the data, we have also updated the NSLDS MyStudentData Download file layout available on the NSLDS Record Layouts page on the IFAP website.

The sample output in the file layout (Appendix A) has been updated to reflect the recent enhancements. Refer to the Introduction of the updated layout for a complete description of the changes.
