NSLDS Data Integrity
NSLDS Data From DMCS
• DMCS has completed a project to improve the integrity of
the data DMCS reports to NSLDS
• If you find an issue with a loan status or a closed loan,
contact the Department’s Debt Resolution Group (DRG) at
1-800-621-3115
• If the issue is with student or parent identifiers (SSN, name,
date of birth) or duplicate loans, contact NSLDS Customer
Support at 1-800-999-8219
– You will have to provide documentation for identifier changes
– This process does take time due to the number of corrections that
are currently necessary
NSLDS Aggregate
Questions and
Reaffirmation
What is Reaffirmation?
The Department sets annual and aggregate
Stafford loan limits that a student cannot
exceed, but sometimes students are overawarded. The student cannot receive any more
federal aid until this overage is addressed. One
of the ways to resolve this issue is called
“reaffirmation.”
Why is Reaffirmation Important?
Every student loan originated is covered by a
Master Promissory Note. This constitutes a
legally binding contract that requires the
borrower to repay the loan in regards to the
requirements listed. The “Promise to Pay”
section only covers the funds the student was
eligible to receive, however.
Resolving Over-Awards
• Satisfactory Repayment Arrangement
– Borrower signs a promise to pay for the overage amount
• Borrower signs and returns a reaffirmation letter
• Borrower consolidates his/her loans
– Reallocation of loan balance
• Can only resolve a subsidized overage or an annual overage
• Will not work if the student exceeds his/her total loan limit
• Only the school that certified the loan(s) in question can request
a reallocation
– Pay down the overage
• Borrower would have to pay enough of the loan balance to
reduce the principal by the overage amount
• Could potentially include interest and require a payment much
greater than the overage itself to pay the loan down
NSLDS and Aggregate Balance
Calculation
• Aggregate Outstanding Principal Balance (Agg OPB) is an
auto system calculated field on NSLDS that is used to total
up loan balances for annual and aggregate amounts
– Original Disbursed Amount
– Outstanding Principal Balance
• New as of January 2013
– Excluding capitalized interest from outstanding Principal Balances
(OPB) for open, non-consolidation loans
– Enhanced the linking logic for underlying loans of Direct
Unsubsidized Consolidation Loans (D5) and Direct Subsidized
Consolidation Loans (D6)
Calculating the Agg OPB
• The loan is originated and Agg OPB starts at the
Original Disbursed Amount
• If the student pays the Outstanding Principal
Balance (OPB) below the Original Disbursed
Amount the Agg OPB reduces to the OPB
• If interest capitalizes, the Agg OPB will increase
but will NEVER go above the Original Disbursed
Amount
– NOTE: it is possible for a student to pay down an
overage and have it reappear as soon as interest
capitalizes again
NSLDS Aggregate Calculation
Process
Recent Aggregate Concerns
• Capitalized Interest
– Capitalized Interest is only reported to NSLDS by
the ED Servicers for Direct Loans and FFEL
Loans that are owned by the Department
– NSLDS modified the display of the Capitalized
Interest Flag and mouse-over text on the
NSLDSFAP Loan History webpage
• Amounts are found on the Loan Detail webpage
Aggregate Updates
Report Changes
Loan Record Detail Report
(LRDR) Updates
• GA/Federal Loan Servicer Code at
Calculation
– NSLDS is adding a new field to the LRDR to
identify the Guaranty Agency (GA) or Federal
Loan Servicer which held the loan at the time
the cohort was calculated
– This field is being added to better direct a
potential challenge or appeal to the proper data

Enrollment Reporting
Update
Importance of Enrollment Reporting
• Critical for administration of Title IV Loan
Programs
• Ensures students’ rights are protected
• Essential for:
– Proper servicing of loan throughout the life cycle
of the loan
– Preventing defaults
– School cohort management
Report Students Where They Attend
• NSLDS places students on a roster based on
reporting of federal aid
• COD disbursement records now require the
“Enrollment School Code”
• It is important that schools add financial aid
recipients to their rosters if the students are
not listed
Report Students Where They Attend
• Students should be reported at two locations of
the same six-digit OPEID only if the student is
actually attending both
• If the student is not enrolled at both locations,
report the correct location for the student
• If a student appears on a roster of an incorrect
location, use the “Move To” functionality to
report the correct location for the student
“Move To” Location Functionality
• The location field
– Last two digits of the eight-digit OPEID
– Has been added in both batch and online
• Schools that share the same six-digit OPEID and
administrator can “move” a student to the roster of the
location where he/she attends
– Helpful for students misreported at a location
– Helpful for transfers between locations
• Batch File
– Field is “Move to School Branch Code”
• Online
– Field on Enrollment Maintenance is “Loc” (Location)
“Move To” Location Functionality
• When certifying a change, provide the
enrollment data for the “new” location
– Enrollment status at new location
– Enrollment status effective date
• For transfers, provide the effective date at the new
location
• For correction of location, provide the date the
student began this current enrollment status for that
location
– Anticipated Completion Date
“Move To” Location Functionality
• When “Move To” is used, NSLDS performs
the action of stopping enrollment at one
location and beginning it at another
• Currently a “Withdrawn” record is applied to
the old location
• In June, NSLDS began using the status of
“Moved” instead of “Withdrawn”

Using Third Party Servicers
• Schools using a third party servicer for any
functionality requiring NSLDS usage is required
to report that relationship to FSA
– All third party servicers must be noted on your ECAR,
including enrollment reporting servicers
– To add a servicer, use the E-App website at
http://eligcert.ed.gov
• Each school is responsible for ensuring that nay
data received from NSLDS by either the school
or its third party servicer is adequately
protected and secured
