Where does the individual-level anonymized data for the collegescorecard live? For obvious reasons, this would be more valuable to researchers than the summary data.
I don't see any access to it from the documentation

College Scorecard data are only available at the institution-level. Many of the data elements are derived from IPEDS data reported to the Department by institutions at the institution-level, see http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/. Most of the other data elements are derived from the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), the Department's central database for student aid. Individual schools and individual students have access to their own individual-level data through NSLDS, see https://www.nsldsfap.ed.gov/nslds_FAP/ and https://www.nslds.ed.gov/nslds/nslds_SA/ .
