Enhancements to the National Student Loan Data System known as NSLDS were implemented recently. These changes include the new Maximum Eligibility Timeline Page to help NSLDS Professional Access users understand when and why events such as Loss of Subsidy (LOS) or Reinstatement of Subsidy occurred. This page displays a chronological, full history of a student’s subsidized usage and enrollment under the 150% Direct Subsidized Loan Limit (SULA) and shows the Direct Subsidized Loan awards and school-certified program enrollment information that can be useful in determining the cause.

Other related enhancements were also added, including changes to the Program Enrollment Detail, and Subsidized Usage pages. Updates on the Transfer Student Monitoring (TSM)/Financial Aid History (FAH) process, new Loan Discharge Reason Codes, and a reminder about the availability of the updated Perkins DataPrep software and Perkins Data Provider Instructions are also provided. Check out NSLDS Newsletter 60 for information about these recent enhancements.
