Institutional Data Form

Students will use the Institutional Data Form (IDF) to accept or decline the Federal Direct Loans which are offered as a result of completing the FAFSA.

Incoming freshmen students will be asked to complete this item after confirming with the University, while returning students will need to complete the IDF each spring for the upcoming academic year. All students who submit a FAFSA are required to complete the IDF.

*Important Note: In order to be eligible for Direct Loans, students must be fully accepted in their program at La Salle and meet the following enrollment criteria:

  • Undergraduate students: enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits/semester, or a minimum of 6 credits in summer session,
  • Graduate students: enrolled in a minimum of 3 credits of graduate-level coursework

To complete the IDF, please follow these instructions if you are a returning student, a newly accepted student within a graduate or continuing studies program, or an incoming student who has received a request to complete this item:

  1. Log on to mylasalle at
