The National Direct Student Loan Coalition (NDSLC) is comprised of schools dedicated to the continuous improvement and strengthening of the Direct Loan program and to assisting colleagues transitioning to Direct Lending. Its members are financial aid professionals working at participating institutions.
Whether you are new to financial aid and the Direct Loan Program or a veteran, resources on the following pages of the website can provide you with information that will explain program processes and requirements, provide resources for improving program administration on your campus, and the latest news from software vendors and the Department of Education.
Additional reference material and resources such as the Direct Loan School Guide and the COD Technical reference are available here. If you are considering challenging your 2011 draft cohort default rate check out Reviewing and Challenging Your 2011 Draft Cohort Default Rate on the Direct Loan Tools page.
The National Direct Student Loan Coalition is available to assist schools. If you have questions or suggestions send us an email or contact a member of the Direct Loan Mentor List.
The Coalition honors Congressman Dale Kildee who will retire at the end of the 112th Congress.
