Student Loan Resources

National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)

Login to NSLDS to view all of your federal student loan information, including total loan amounts, and loan servicer information. It is possible that when you begin repaying your student loans, you will need to make payments to more than one agency. NOTE: NSLDS does not provide private loan information, only federal loan information.

Student Loan Repayment

You can complete the "Before You Go" worksheet that will provide you with a convenient location to record the information you gather from NSLDS.

Understanding Default

If you don't make your loan payments, you risk going into default. If you have already defaulted on any federal student loans or would like to view your federal loan servicer, visit: nslds.ed.gov.
