It receives data from schools, agencies that guaranty loans, the Direct Loan program and other U.S. Department of Education programs. NSLDS provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants that are tracked through their entire cycle; from aid approval through closure.  Information about Title IV, HEA loans (Federal Direct and PLUS loans) will be submitted to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), and will be accessible by guaranty agencies, lenders, and schools determined to be authorized users of the data system.

Student Complaint Policy

DePauw University has policies and protocols for reporting and resolving several types of incidents and complaints. The Student Complaint Policy includes the policies and/or reporting steps for:

  • University Harassment Policy
  • ADA Grievance
  • Classroom Complaints
  • University Bias Incident Reporting Protocol
  • Reporting an Incident of Sexual Misconduct
  • Filing a Complaint Outside of DePauw

In some cases, it may be difficult for a person with a concern to categorize the nature of the incident.  In addition, some incidents may span categories.  Such difficulties should not dissuade individuals from reporting a concern or filing a complaint using any of the university policies and protocols.

Retaliation, or attempts to retaliate, against any individual who files a grievance or complain is strictly prohibited.
