Financial literacy is important. We want to ensure that you stay financially healthy for life. That’s why we’re proud to offer free financial literacy assistance to all of our students and alumni.

NATIONAL STUDENT LOAN DATA SYSTEM (NSLDS)
Keeping track of your student loans is easy with the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). NSLDS is the U.S. Department of Education’s database for student aid and provides a centralized, integrated view of a student’s federal loan borrowing and federal Pell Grant usage. In order to use the NSLDS Student Access web site, you will need to provide your FSA ID username and password.
You can use the U.S. Department of Education’s Repayment Estimator to get an early look at which plans you may be eligible for and see estimates for how much you would pay monthly overall.
