Keep Track of Your Loans

The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is the U.S. Department of Education’s comprehensive database that helps federal student loan borrowers find information about their loans including:

  • Loan amounts disbursed and current balances
  • Schools attended and their contact information
  • Your student loan holder(s) and contact information
  • Grace period details
  • Loan interest rate

To access the NSLDS, you’ll need your federal Personal Identification Number (PIN), the same number you used when completing the FAFSA.

Lost your PIN? If you’ve forgotten or lost your federal PIN, you can request a duplicate from the Federal Student Aid PIN website.

Print the Loan Tracking Worksheet to record details of your loans. If you don't know who the lender or servicer is and you don't have a coupon book or bill for these loans, access your credit report to see who is reporting outstanding loans in your name.
