How to log on

Below the authorized personnel warning in the center of the page, the Click to Continue button appears.

To logon:

Click to Continue button. After selecting the Click to Continue button, you will be directed to the FSA Logon page to enter your FSA ID and Password for user access authentication. After successfully logging into NSLDS, you will be directed to the Welcome page of the NSLDS Professional Access Web site to select the organization code.

Once you have selected the organization code that you wish to access on NSLDS, you will then be prompted to complete the User Access Verification page. On the User Access Verification page, enter the text you see in the image displayed on your screen. The text may include both alphabetical and numerical characters. Then, click Submit Response. If you entered the text incorrectly on the page, a second image will appear. Enter the text displayed in that image and submit it again. After three unsuccessful attempts, the organization code you previously selected will be locked.

To resolve your User Access Verification failure attempts, you can contact the NSLDS Customer Support Center to have the organization code unlocked. The NSLDS Customer Support Center can be reached at 1-800-999-8219, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET. Callers in locations without access to 800 numbers may call 785-838-2141 (this is not a toll free number).

Once the User Access Verification information has been entered correctly, you will be directed to the Main Menu page.
