Updated NSLDS Video
In an effort to help borrowers successfully manage their student loan debt, we’ve released a new and improved video, How to Find out What You Owe. This short video explains how to access federal student loan information using the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS).
The video is available on OCAP’s YouTube Channel and on the home page of this website, under Quick Links. We encourage you to share this video with your students or link to it from your school’s website. If you currently link to our original NSLDS video, please replace the link at your earliest opportunity.
Unauthorized Use of Institutional Branding
The unauthorized use of instutional logos, seals, names and other trademarks is a growing trend. Often, third party companies using such trademarks without authorization target student loan borrowers for payment for services that would otherwise be free. The Department of Education (ED) recently issued two cease and desist letters to third-party "debt-relief" companies that were using ED's official seal without authorization.
