National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is a database containing all reported information on a student's Title IV financial aid. The NSLDS Match flag, combined with the NSLDS Results Flag, tells you the status of a student's loans and Title IV overpayments (Pell, FSEOG, TEACH, Iraq/Afghanistan Service Grant, and Perkins).
The codes and their meanings are as follows:
|1||Match conducted, student not in default or overpayment.|
|2||Applicant has at least one reported default.|
|3||Applicant has at least one Title IV overpayment reported.|
|4||Applicant has at least one reported default and Title IV overpayment.|
|7||Match but no data provided.|
|8||Record not sent to NSLDS.|
