In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (Privacy Act), 5 United States Code (U.S.C.) 552a, the Chief Operating Officer for Federal Student Aid (FSA) of the U.S. Department of Education (Department) publishes this notice proposing to revise the system of records entitled ``National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)'' (18-11-06), 64 FR 72395-72397 (December 27, 1999). In this notice, the Department proposes to revise this system of records to make updates needed as a result of legislative changes to the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) made by the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110-84), enacted on September 27, 2007, and by the Higher Education Opportunity Act (Pub. L. 110-315) (HEOA), enacted on August 14, 2008. As a result of these legislative changes, we have updated the categories of records maintained in this system, clarified the categories of individuals covered by the system and the system's purposes, and expanded the routine uses to reflect needed programmatic disclosures.
