Subject: NSLDS School Portfolio Report Enhancements

We have updated the record layout for the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) School Portfolio Report. This report provides a school with information about all William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) and/or Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) program loans associated with its school code. It includes loans that are serviced by all servicers, including our federal loan servicers, and provides identifying information about the servicer for each loan. The report can be requested ad hoc on the Report tab of the NSLDS Professional Access website or requested as a scheduled report from the Organization Profile section on the Org tab. The report is delivered via the Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG).

The following data elements have been added to the School Portfolio Report:

  • Statutory Interest Rates

  • Actual Interest Rates

The updated record layouts are now available on the NSLDS Record Layouts page of the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) website

Additionally, the NSLDS School Portfolio Report Import Tool has been updated with these data elements. The School Portfolio Report Import Tool can be used to easily load data generated from the comma separated values (CSV) extract version of the School Portfolio Report into the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet application, and is designed to assist schools with reviewing and analyzing their School Portfolio Report extract files.

To download the School Portfolio Report Import Tool, go to the Default Prevention Resource Information page. The School Portfolio Report Import Tool can be found in the “Default Prevention Resources – Reducing Default Risk” box in the middle of the page. Instructions for using the tool are provided on the first tab of the workbook.
