Subject: Availability of Updated NSLDS Enrollment Reporting Guide and Enrollment Spreadsheet Submittal Instruction Guide

We are pleased to announce the availability of the updated National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) Enrollment Reporting Guide, a comprehensive document containing step-by-step instructions for reporting enrollment information to NSLDS. Updates to the guide include clarification on how to report enrollment data and how to add students to rosters, as well as information regarding the new Enrollment Statistics page and the new Enrollment Statistics report, available on the NSLDS Professional Access Web site.

The updated NSLDS Enrollment Reporting Guide (October 2015) is available on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site, in the NSLDS User Documentation section. The updated guide replaces the July 2014 version.

Additionally, an updated version of the NSLDS Enrollment Spreadsheet Submittal Instruction Guide is now available in the "Software and Associated Documents" section of the Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site. The October 2015 version of the guide includes updates to field descriptions and examples based on enhancements made in the last year; however, the Enrollment Submittal Template itself remains unchanged.
