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 FSA ID, the same ID you used when completing the FAFSA.
Lost your FSA ID? If you’ve forgotten your FSA ID username or password, you can retrieve it from the Federal Student Aid FSA ID website. You can retrieve the FSA ID using the email or phone number you provided when creating the FSA ID or answering the Challenge Questions.
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.
