How to keep track of your Federal Student Loan Debt on NSLDS:

The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) will provide you with outstanding loan amounts and loan holder information for every federal student loan you ever borrow. You will need your FSA ID in order to log into your NSLDS account at www.nslds.ed.gov.

After reviewing your loan portfolio on NSLDS, you will need to contact your loan servicer regarding all questions or concerns.  For a complete list of loan servicers for federally held loans made through the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program visit studentaid.gov

It is the borrower's responsibility to check this website regularly for any and all federal aid information and updates.

Below are step-by-step instructions on checking your federal student loan portfolio and determining your federal loan servicer through NSLDS.
