What is the MyStudentData File?
The MyStudentData file is an electronic .txt file that every Federal borrower has access to within the NSLDS portal.
This file is a consolidated summary of the borrower’s federal student loan debt. It’s referred to as the “MyStudentData” file because the name of the file downloaded from NSLDS is “MyStudentData.txt”.
This file is needed to understand what loans you currently have and what type or additional repayment options are available to you.
