Loan Repayment

Borrowing to fund your education is an investment in your future. However, this is an investment that must be repaid. Repaying your student loans establishes your financial independence and credit history.

Your loan payments will be handled differently, depending on the program. To support your repayment efforts, links to service agencies that handle your payments are listed below, according to the loan type. Also included are links to information on how to recover your student loan history, consolidate loans, and benefit from student tax deductions.
