Sallie Mae loan won't update

I have a Sallie Mae student loan that I've added to Mint. About 6 days ago, it started saying this on the Mint account page: "Your bank needs you to update some information. Please visit Sallie Mae Loans and update your account."

I've gone to my loan page and I can't find anywhere that I should be updating my account at. No matter what I've tried, Mint still won't connect to my account.

Any insight into this would be appreciated.

EDIT (4/19/2016): There hasn't been an answer yet. Cormac has provided info on how the auth process with Sallie Mae has changed, which is what Mint should be looking into. However, this hasn't been resolved, so I won't mark it as the "answer."

EDIT (4/25/2016): The issue should now be resolved. I logged into my Mint account and my Sallie Mae loan has updated now. If yours isn't, verify that your information is correct before opening a support ticket.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
